Restore individual files?
Authored by: Cameroon on Sep 27, '05 06:06:28PM

I think what that is saying is that if you restore a directory, the directory as it existed at the time of the backup will be recreated.

From the examples:

But the main advantage of rdiff-backup is that it keeps version history. This command restores host.net::/remote-dir/file as it was 10 days ago into a new location /tmp/file.

rdiff-backup -r 10D host.net::/remote-dir/file /tmp/file

Other acceptable time strings include 5m4s (5 minutes and 4 seconds) and 2002-03-05 (March 5th, 2002). For more information, see the TIME FORMATS section of the manual page.

Which leads me to believe just the opposite of your conclusion, as the example explicitly mentions restoring a file.
