I have backed up my home directory from on HDD to another, both on the
same machine. I have run the back up command (a simple rdiff-backup foo
bar) several times over the last couple of days so there should be
increments present.

For example I can do:
rdiff-backup --list-changed-since 20m ./BACKUPDIR/
[clip stuff]
changed Dropbox/home/scripts/fresh_install.sh
deleted Dropbox/home/scripts/fresh_install.sh~

I know the script "fresh_install.sh" has changed multiple times and
rdiff-backup indeed seems to have noticed a change here. But when I
search for increments I get:

rdiff-backup -l ./scripts/fresh_install.sh
Found 0 increments:

Any idea what could be going wrong?


-l, --list-increments
List the number and date of partial incremental backups contained in the specified destination directory. No backup or
restore will take place if this option is given.


rdiff-backup -l ./BACKUPDIR/
