Thankfully, I have everything in the RAID array backed up over multiple machines via git. :)

From bup's website: bup is "Highly efficient file backup system based on the git packfile format." https://github.com/bup/bup

I would love to see "git bup!"
The reason I'm sticking with git is that's is easily available anywhere and right now I mostly just use it as a more convenient rsync. That is, I simply want to make a bunch of files easily available anywhere. As a bonus, replication provides a incremental backup capability.

"But, git-annex also extends git's concept of remotes, with these special types of remotes. These can be used just like any normal remote by git-annex. They cannot be used by other git commands though."

I've looked at bup but haven't yet taken the plunge. I'd rather keep a fully git-compatible format until I am forced to change.
