Bug Description

GIven how Deja-Dup failed to backup data to a Samba share (, I had it backup into a local folder, then copied the folder onto Samba and verified that the same amount of files were there. Then I had to wipe my home folder (was undoing ecryptfs slowness), and I copied the files off Samba onto the computer again. I asked Deja-Dup to restore the files... and it failed with: "Could not restore ‘/home/svorai/<location of backups>’: File not found in backup".

Now I don't know how to get my data back.

I think this was because I accidentally did not specify that the backup of the home folder should be going back into the home folder explicitly.
