200GB+ "a little more". Ex 300GB will most likely do for a VERY long time.

I think you did miss the point.

I can dl a cd in 10 minutes and a dvd in four hours. I have a collection of 1000+ films. I have each month 4cd and 1 dvd of linux alpha distro (and often more)

all this is filling my drive.

I have also (right now) 4 hours of dv video (50Gb) and the 3 dvd O made from it (30Bg with the associated files I need to keep for editing purpose)

all this is very important right now but will have nearly no interest in some days (only the dvd resulting will have meaning)

it's impossible to backup all this, I already have problems keeping them one month :-)

much data have an importance for a very small time.

there is no other solution than selecting the part to backup manually...

I know of database systems with several gigabytes of data, with small changes (think at wikipedia)

I only want to say that no backup strategy is univesal, anybody must find one that suits his needs. yours or an other :-)
