As I understand it (and I'm new to dirvish too) there aren't any tools 
to copy files back.  You just use the linux cp command to get them back.

The purpose of the locate tool is just to scan the index files and tell 
you which backups your file exists in.  After that you just make your 
way through the folder tree.
