So, why, is Retrospect *not* backing up the files?

On a folder I had where this was a problem (I couldn't back up the 
files within the folder), I deleted the "finder.dat" file:

The files (and subfolders) within that folder were then backed up sucessfully.

*And* I could open every single file within that folder.

What am I missing?
