I suppose you want to use NTFS for backup in order to at the same time produce

Do you need to use NTFS for the external drive? I suggest you try again using
a Linux format such as ext3 and see if you have more success.
My impression is that a high proportion of problems with rdiff-backup relate
to backups to NTFS volumes (backup *from* NTFS generally works fine).
BTW, I see open source utility Ext2Read 
allows a Windows machine to read and copy from Ext2/3/4 (including using LVM2)
Since the backups are being made in Linux I will consider using Ext2
or FAT32 as destiny, but sharing files with Windows is an important

You could use samba on a *nix machine to share with Windows. Or use rdiffweb or rdiff-backup.exe (Windows version) to recover direct from the *nix repositories.
