    you could rsync the directories you care off of the server, or make tar balls on the server itself and then rsync them off.

    or you could install 'bacula' one of my favs
    sudo aptitude install bacula

    I've been using scripted RSYNC in cron jobs to perform that kind of remote disk synchronization task for more years than I care to count. I've just been too lazy to set up a "proper" backup system, just because I'm always to busy to change things. RSYNC scripts with RSA authenticated passkeys and SSH logons is very reliable.
