True.  Personally, I like dump/restore for disaster-recovery backups
on FreeBSD.  However, if you frequently need individual file recovery
(e.g., Joe User deletes an important file and wants it back) or if you
need to back up systems running something other than FreeBSD, BackupPC
is hard to beat for disk-to-disk backup.  If you're going to tape you
might want something like Amanda, instead.
