I strongly guess that it's fixed with the latest beta of rdiff-backup (1.9.1b0) but feel free to create an issue if you still have the problem.

The Windows build provided on the download page doesn't include the PyWin32 modules which support Windows ACLs. (These modules are: win32file, win32security, pywintypes, win32api, win32con.) Following some instructions I'd found on the mailing list (http://www.mail-archive.com/rdiff-backup-users@nongnu.org/msg04090.html), which almost worked for me out-of-the-box, I re-ran the final "setup.py py2exe --single-file" step with an additional -i argument specifying the above modules, and the resultant monolithic executable will indeed back up Windows ACLs.

I would attach it here, but for filesize restrictions.
