[rdiff-backup-users] Deleteing Files from repository

Hi all,

I recently deleted a folder from my rdiff-backup repository using 

$ rm -rf foldername

Running rdiff-backup after having done this generates following error.

A regular file was indicated by the metadata, but could not be
constructed from existing increments because last increment had type
None.  Instead of the actual file's data, an empty length file will be
created.  This error is probably caused by data loss in the
rdiff-backup destination directory, or a bug in rdiff-backup
Warning: Could not restore file Music/music_27.mp3!

There are many other similar warnings being displayed, this is just an example.

Any suggestions on how I clean this up ?
