Do you really need to *back up* 300Gb.  Chances are you are only actively
modifying a tiny portion of that and the rest would be more appropriate for
archiving.  Photos are a good example.  They take up a lot of space, but
once you're done with scanning, color correcting, annotating, or whatever,
they don't generally change.  I've got 10s of Gb of photos too, but I don't
back them up every day.  Instead if have a few copies archived on CD and
DVD.
