Dear all:

I was testing rdiff-backup and the source machine was turned off. Now,
when I try to backup to the same destination, I get this message:

# rdiff-backup -v3 --exclude /home/xxxx/ /home 
gotvertigobackup@xxxxxxxxxxx::/home/xxxbackup/backup

Previous backup seems to have failed, regressing destination now.

rdiff_backup.connection.ConnectionReadError: Truncated header string
(problem probably originated remotely)

On previous runs, I saw a Gzip error on
error_log.2004-10-24T21:50:24-07:00.data.gz and when I try to zcat
this file, I got a zcat: error_log.2004-10-24T21:50:24-07:00.data.gz:
unexpected end of file
 
But now, this file is gone (Im sure I haven't deleted it).

How can I continue backing up my data?
