They have been uploaded, but because the backup didn't complete, they are
not linked from the backup directory. This is because immutable directory
trees must be constructed bottom-up (starting with the leaves and
progressing to the root). When you resume the backup, the convergent
encryption will ensure that only a small amount of work needs to be done
for files that have already been uploaded.
