Another way to do backup can be `git', which manages Linux kernel (300MB+),
although far less than 2Gb, but it's fast.

In my case, git wouldn't be an option. My directories are already under source control. My make process tar-gz's the directories to speed up builds. Other projects that need those directories, just pick the TGZ files they need and uncompress them into a common directory. I use them to build small embedded Linux filesystems. I was just looking for a way to keep the directories expanded for source control, to archive them as part of the build, and finally, to get make to update the archives whenever the files change. I think the $(shell find...) approach will work for me since my files are rather small (~11 MB).
