comment Initial rdiff-backup on slow connection / large data (Could performing an rsync before help?)
@Fox Your initial suggestion did not work (reason unknown), but your suggestion in comment (sort of) worked. I got some random deltas on some files but only on few ones, so it works now. Do you want to edit your answer accordingly for future reference or should i do it?

comment Initial rdiff-backup on slow connection / large data (Could performing an rsync before help?)
I am in situation where I have the files in remote (without rdfiff info), so I tried, to rdiff-backup it "locally" on remote from one dir to another (to create rdiff files) and than rdiff backup from local to remote. However it is still restarting and sends all deltas. Somehow the rdiff "restart strategy" is spawned anytime there is slightest suspicion that something is wrong.

@SmallClanger: If you are right than there is not hope one can "resume" the initial backup in any way :(

That is a good idea, thanks, however here is what is strange and what happened several times: I started rdiff-backup and it starts getting these deltas. Than as the process is very long it fails in some point (probably network issues), so I delete rdiff-backup-data and try again. And it starts getting these deltas ALL OVER AGAIN, from the first file. Does not it have synchronized the files in the first failed attempt? Or it first gets all deltas and than applies them?
