Has anyone written a script to restore multiple files/directories at once using rdiff-backup on windows? Single files work fine.

rdiff != rdiff-backup; you might get more answers if you title your question appropriately – womble May 13 '09 at 7:31

It's not clear what you're asking here. Rdiff backup should be as simple as

rdiff-backup /sourcedir /backupdir.

To restore all backed up files

rdiff-backup -r now /backupdir /restoredirectory

Maybe if you elaborate a bit on what exactly you're trying to do?

you know, I got this to work, (its on windows)-- The error messages I was getting tricked me into thinking the windows version couldn't do this yet – Scott Kramer May 14 '09 at 20:57
