When I want to know why a certain backup was large, I will look in the file-statistics for the backup. The file header tells you what's in the file:

# Filename Changed SourceSize MirrorSize IncrementSize

Some examples --

To see all the new or changed files or directories:

zgrep -e ' 1( [^ ]+){3}$' rdiff-backup-data/file_statistics.2013-04-11T04\:17\:09-04\:00.data.gz

To see new files greater than 10MB:

zgrep -e ' 1 [0-9]{8,} NA 0$' rdiff-backup-data/file_statistics.2013-04-11T04\:17\:09-04\:00.data.gz

Other useful patterns (I think these are generally correct):

New files:
' 1 [0-9]+ NA 0$'

Changed files:
' 1( [0-9]+){3}$'

Deleted files:
' 1 NA [0-9]+ [^0][0-9]*$'

New directories:
' 1 0 NA NA$'

Changed directories:
' 1 0 0 NA$'

Deleted directories:
' 1 NA 0 0$'
