I have a big set of backup files on a slow USB drive (my Linux laptop only has USB 2.0 ports). In order to quickly update the backup, I have been using rsync in "look only at modification time" mode.

I don't want to copy all files again, as it would take hours. Is there a way to tell rdiff-backup to regenerate the 'rdiff-backup-data' directory?
By the way, this is the little wrapper script that I am using:
