The good thing is that you have the data, even if it will take a while to get it back online.

Actually I realised you knew rsync, hence I was talking about rdiff-backup which is "rsync + diffs". ;-) It is a great system for having the functionality of an rsync backup, whilst also keeping an archive of extended attributes and binary diffs. I use it on my systems, so I can not only get the "last" backup but roll back a number of days also.
