But I'm not in favor of incremental backups for home use. They're fine (and necessary) for highly disciplined data center settings. Less so for the home.

I much prefer file synchronization (especially for large and growing image collections). This is much simpler to execute and risk of problems due to incomplete data sets is considerably reduced.

Any thoughts on WD's own Smartware software, which - as I happen to read - in the last versions should let you to perform a complete drive/folders backup, not only of given files categories?
