I don't like using any more storage space than necessary for backups, so
I would use an app that makes a compressed image of the entire HD instead
of DD (DFSee, but likely there's some FOSS that could do the same).

I beleive it's possible to run dd through gzip to compress the data.

Man dd shows nothing on "compres" or "zip". You can compress the resulting
image later, of course.

I have a compression procedure using zisofs when burning such images to
several DVDs, but it is rather involved.
