[OS X TeX] OT: Backup software

This is OT.

I dutifully backup with Retrospect, say every hour, but just now I 
needed one of yesterdays versions of one of the over 10000 files that 
make up the Magnum Opus. And I couldn't get Retrospect to cough-up the 
file even when given the path name. Of course, I know a Retrospect 
"expert" who will get me the file but I am fed up.

I just spent over an hour googling for backup software (over FireWire or 
Ethernet) to an external hard drive and, most important, one that is 

SuperDuper ($27.95) ,  Data Backup ($49),  Intego ($70) all appear 
reasonable but of course they each claim to be the best. The only Open 
Source I found was on the terminal so that ruled it out.

I would very much appreciate any suggestion.
