Nice review of OS X backup solutions - Articles - Backing Up Your MacThe author liked Sync, a shareware app. He specifically excluded Retrospect (which I use). Sync sounds like it might be good for a redundant backup solution.

I do daily full backups with offsite rotation every few weeks, but I also do alternative drive imaging every month or so. I'm a bit paranoid about backups. In the last 15 years backups have saved my skin at least six times, including at least 3 complete system failures. Not to mention numerous restores of several files saving hours of work.

Now if I could only create a good and affordable offsite continuous incremental network backup solutions ... I'm hoping Google will help one day ...
