I use the following recipe:

1/ Full system image (usually one time, and/or refreshed after a
apt-get upgrade or dist-upgrade) using redobackup for offline backup
on DVD / external USB.

2/ rsync based incremental backups - takes care of (a) the important
directories that I want backed up (b) the koha data dumps generated
via koha-run-backups. Both (a) and (b) being cron driven.

hope that helps
