Hi Corvus,

You seem to be missing the point of an incremental backup. The point is to be able to do a restore to a point in time. For example you deleted / changed a critical file on tuesday, but do not realize it until friday. From waht I understand, if you rsynced everyday, the orginal or unchanged file is not lost forever.
