Battle.net fails to locate (out of date) games

Bug Report
This weekend I reinstalled my OS and moved the drive my games are installed onto so that I did not have to redownload them. When I launched Battle.net and told it where my Blizzard games are it told me that no games were installed. When I went to the specific game and told it the folder the game was in it told me the game was "not the correct version." I clicked install and Battle.net downloaded what it needed for the latest version of the game and updated the installed files. No problems there.

However, this leaves me with the conclusion that when Battle.net "scans" for games it does not detect out of date versions of a game and is notifying the user that nothing is there instead of trying to prompt for a reinstall or preferably update the existing files. I would even be fine with being told a game was found but marking the game as needing to be reinstalled.
