I am trying to run rdiff-backup on my new computer and a fresh backup directory 
but I just get the following errors
when I try to run rdiff-backup..:

Fatal Error: Destination directory


exists, but does not look like a rdiff-backup directory.  Running
rdiff-backup like this could mess up what is currently in it.  If you
want to update or overwrite it, run rdiff-backup with the --force

/mnt/backup is a new and empty directory, shouldn't this work without any 
hazzle? Or do I need to run it using the
--force option the first time I run rdiff-backup?
(Can't remember I had to do this before....)
