I've always considered backuppc to be one of those rare things that
you set up once and it takes care of itself for years.  If you have
problems with it, someone on the backuppc mail list might be able to
help.   It does tend to be slower than native rsync and especially bad
at handling huge directories, but sometimes you can split up large
filesystems into smaller subdirectory runs and if necessary you can
use the ClientAlias feature to make it look like a single large host
is several different systems so you can skew the full and incremental
runs of different areas to different days.
