Good Morning Dwayne,
When I need to "reset my archive"  I typically go to the archive and mv
the rdiff-backup-data directory out of the target directory.  This is the 
directory where all the increments are stored.  It may be important to 
keep that file around for a little while as you get your backups 
underway again.

I have usually kept the copy of all the other files in the destination 
directory so they don't have to be re-copied.
