Can you elaborate on this, please?

OK, say you want to restore file A from some time ago...

Without fully understanding this, would it be possible, if the repository is inside an LVM logical volume (mine will be, as it so happens :-) ), to create a snapshot and then restore from that, while the original backup proceeds on the original volume? Or would the snapshot also be locked/unusable, whether for an rdiff-backup restore or for other processes? (I want to replicate my rdiff-backup server repositories to an offsite machine, and my plan is to have a cron job which creates an LVM snapshot and then uses rsync to synchronise the remote data, but again this activity might overlap with ongoing backups.)
