Hi all,

it's my turn, metadata got corrupted. From the log I see:

"*Error: Warning, could not find mirror_metadata file. Metadata will be
read from filesystem instead.*"

I did follow the faq in the guide, but the trick is unsuccessful.

That FAQ section really isn't relevant to your problem. What do you see if
you go to the rdiff-backup-data directory in the archive and run "ls -l
mirror_metadata* | tail" ?

Hi Robert,
actually that file doesn't exist...

This is what I see:
ls -l rdiff-backup-data/

total 252

Since all of the mirror_metadata files appear to have been deleted, there isn't
much left besides the current mirror and the attributes that are attached to the
files and directories there. If those backups actually completed successfully,
I don't know how those metadata files could have been lost except by manual
deletion. In any event, unless there is something in particular you need to
recover from this damaged backup, I would suggest just throwing it away and
starting fresh.

                Do NOT delete it.
