I tried:
"rdiff-backup --list-at-time
2012-12-31 /run/media/eric/b*/Fedora15-2Backup/var/www/html/jQuery"

but this gave me this reply:
Fatal Error: Bad
"directory /run/media/eric/b*/Fedora15-2Backup/var/www/html/jQuery.
It doesn't appear to be an rdiff-backup destination dir"

The command seems to work OK for directories that haven't been deleted
and that existed at 2012-12-31.

I've been working on the belief that rdiff-backup would let one restore
things that have been accidentally deleted. Is that not true?
