Thanks for the reply Dominic,

1: There is no rdiff-backup-data folder (or any folder with 'rdiff' in it's 
name) in the source directory.
2: Yes, the two backup destinations share a parent folder.
3: Yes, the account has the correct permissions for the destination. I have 
also run rdiff-backup -l on the folder while logged in as root on the 
destination machine and it gives the same error, if running it as root would 

The backup itself actually runs as root from the source machine via the ssh 
config file and a 'command="rdiff-backup ..." setup on the destination, so 
permissions should never be an issue for writing the files. The files 
themselves still have the source ownership/privileges of course.
