SOURCE: Bicycles Brakes Tightening
Are the brakes center pull or side pull?
Center pull would have a nut directly in the center of the brake. Now go to the brake lever on your handle bars and tighten the turn screw where the cable handle is. Keep turning the nut till your brakes grip.
If you have side pull brakes. Then where the cable meets the breaks. Their is a nut that the cable slides through. Loosen the nut and firmly pull the cable till its tight and retighten the nut.

SOURCE: Rear Disc brake is rubbingke
I had the same problem with my Hope mono-mini.
I took it into a shop and the guy showed my ruffly what to do.
On the side that the disk is rubbing you need to put a spacer on the bolt between the brake mount and the bike's mount.
If done correctly (or understood what i meant) it will pull the pad away from the disk a little bit and it will stop rubbing.
Hope it helps

There are two techniques:
The first involves the adjusting barrels and lock nuts on the brake levers, but i prefer to loosen the cable in the brake arm and pull it tighter and reclamp it there.
Hope this helps, feel free to email for further help,
