I currently use the former, but will be moving to the later at some
point soon since it gives me much more efficient storage of the data and
metadata in our backup system.
I don't know your clients, obviously, but generally running a nightly

 With LVM snapshots, so downtime is ~ five minutes.
 BackupPC, which pools common content, so will only record the (much
