When BackupPC runs a full backup (with rsync) it does the equivalent of
a stock rsync. So, the bandwidth used is *only* the changed file
I believe that running a daily full backup, rather than any incremental,
will give you the performance you want.
Try it on your LAN first, of course, but it should be exactly what you
