I've got a directory that seems to be missing some files.

I don't recall their names or exactly when they existed.

rdiff-backup -l  --list-increment-sizes<path-to-backup-dir>

shows me that I have about 10 instances of that directory backup up.

Is there some way to get a list of every file that I've ever backed up
for that directory tree?  Even if I see the same file 10 times, I'm
happy.  I just want to see all the files.


If you don't mind using a web application rather than CLI, have you considered rdiffWeb? In each directory this shows all files that ever existed as well as the currently-existing ones, and you can click'n'choose which revision to retrieve.

I don't know how rdiffWeb does this 'under the hood' but I guess it calls some of rdiff-backup's internal functions (rdiffWeb, like rdiff-backup, is a python app).
