I have tried NBackup, but I am having trouble with those deltafiles.
Sometimes the cleanup after backup is not working properly. I thing I
may have started a level 2 before level 1 has ended?

Still - it is not the best solution anyway because A) Level 2 (every
30 min) takes just at long time to run as Level 0 (once every week),
so it is not at big timesaver. B) Sometimes I need to take a level 0
and transfer it to the remote server anyway or else I just get at
bigger level 1/2/3.
