Sorry for once more but: you can make incremental backups every x
minutes with Bacula too .. it only takes one or two minutes on my box to
scan for changed files for ~150GB (even faster if you tweak it a bit).
It's not really a "true" continuous backup solution, but it's perfectly
possible to restore directories/files for changes which occurred x
minutes ago, and with retention periods of x days/months/years.
