On full backups: one of the nice things about rsnapshot and similar rsync-based tools is that every backup is both a full backup and an incremental backup. Full in that previous backups can be deleted without any effect on this backup (thanks to hard links), and incremental in that the data transfer required is proportional to the specific data blocks that have changed (thanks to rsync).
