​My pleasure, thank you​

​The script expects to find either 1 or 2 'current_mirror' files and will
abort otherwise. If you reduce the number of current_mirror files to 2 you
can just run rdiff-backup --check-destination-dir and bypass my script.
However I don't know whether you will end up with a consistent archive or
not. After successful completion (if you see this) I suggest running
several verifications (rdiff-backup --verify-at-time), starting with 'now'
and then trying earlier dates.
