ok i thought you are into some film business or something.

then you actually just need versioned backups. they are super fast. as The fu demonstrated.

aside from CLI utilities there are GUIs that will setup the scripts. they would then do incremental backups.

Areca & Duplicati seemed to work best when i tried them out (though i did seek something that would work on linux and windows).

but for example if you just experiment with system on the drive then snapshots using BTRFS or ZFS4linux might be faster. or virtual machines.
