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).
