Obviously the first choice is zfs snapshots but if you're like me,
that's not a choice.

I'd recommend something like borg backup:

It's a python written app that will dedup your data so there's a
chance it can compress and dedup your large datasets very nicely.

The maintainer is very active with keeping it current and 1.0.3 is
available in ports/pkg:

As you will see in the documentation, you can make a script and call
it with cron however often/irregular you would like and have it also

I think it's worth trying out for your use case.
