Trouble with interrupted rdiff-backup

dsepeur@t-online.de
Hello and Merry Christmas to all,
 
im new at this list and i subscribed with a big problem. Hopefully, someone
can help me in this issue.
 
Today morning i started a backup. This backup gots interrupted by the feet
of our cat :)
 
So i thought, that i simply empty the target directory and start over from
scratch. But no luck. Everything i try gets answered from rdiff-backup
with:
 
Found interrupted initial backup. Removing...

At the website of Savannah i found, that i have to contact the mailing list
to get help with message AssertionError.
 
Im struggling around now for  hours to get this backup working, but no
luck.
 
So if someone out there which can help me, i will be very very grateful.
 
Thanks alot and merry Christmas for all
 
Daniel

my guess is you didn't fully empty the target directory. I suggest you
delete the target directory, then recreate it and try again.
