[Box Backup] Boxbackup deleted directories

I'm running boxbackup from one clients server to another server housed
in an offsite data centre.
Now, a while back the drive containing /home started acting funny with
read-errors on certain sectors.
So I took it offline to run do some checking, and ordered a raid-card
and some new drives to replace it.
I didn't kill bbackupd before I unmounted the drive however (but a short
time later), and when I now run bbackupquery it only lists one directory
in /home. The other dirs are listed as deleted.
Now, when (and if) I manage to get most of the data off the semi-broken
disk and onto the new raid-array, will bbackupd have to re-transfer
Or will box backup understand that it already have these files and
there's no need to transfer them again, just mark them as present and
Alternatively, is there anyway I can tell box backup to make the deleted
directories be listed as present in the store again?
Thanks for your input,
