Recreating forgot snapshots


I have run a restic rewrite -iexclude /home/me/.config --forget which was too greedy.

I still have the snapshots references (from restic snapshots), is there a way to restore/recreate then? (I didn’t run restic prune)


You can try to reconstruct some snapshot using restic recover, however, that won’t recreate the original snapshots but rather an all-in-one snapshot.

The snapshots references are unfortunately not much help.
