I used to use my Backup.rsync wrapper to get good resumption of
interrupted backups. It will always do a backup relative to the most
recent complete save, starting from the most recent incomplete save

These days, I pretty much just use my backshift program though - it's
inspired by rsync, and will do any saves relative to at most 3
previous backups: 1) The most recent backup 2) The most recent
completed backup 3) The backup with the most files in it.
