I think the best long term backup is multiple external USB drives. If one
dies, you still have the others. It's unlikey they'd all die at once. I
use g4l to to image backups of the whole drive so I can recover from a
disaster. Those are done about once a month. Once a week, I do an rsync to
a drive, which copies whatever has changed. I have a small shell script on
the USB drive. I plug it in to any computer on the network, double click
to start it, and a little while later, all files are synched.
