Look at backuppc.  It has a nice web interface to manage it and
browse/restore backups and it compresses and pools identical content
to hold much more online than you would expect.   It is all controlled
from the linux side and can work with windows either over smb or you
can install cygwin rsync to save bandwidth.  You would want to format
the drive with a linux filesystem, though.
