Already answered.  Under rsync based backup systems like rsnapshot, 
every backup is a full backup.  Therefore, incremental and differential 
backups are the same thing.  As you already understand that rsync will 
do incremental backups without using find, you also understand that it 
will do differential backups without using find.
