I lost/misplaced some files on two disks (about 5000+7000 files), which are now showing up as unused files.

"git annex whereused --historical --unused" shows the original paths and filenames. these are however not retained when restoring via "git-annex-addunused"

Is there a way/option to restore these to the original paths + filenames? I don't see myself renaming all these files manually...*

* I have a backup, but that leaves a small window for dataloss as the disks are full, so I must dropunused first. So I would prefer a addunused if possible (will also be faster I presume).
