I'm presently backing up two servers in a remote location to a usb drive=20
located elsewhere by using rsync over ssh (all three are FreeBSD boxes.)=20
After the recent discussion about dump, I'm wondering if I would gain=20
anything by using dump rather than rsync.  Has anyone used both?  Any=20
thoughts as to which is "better" and why?

The rsync command I use is:
rsync -avz ${LOCALDIR} -e "ssh -i ${KEY}" ${REMOTEHOST}:${REMOTEDIR}
