    transfer the backup files to the remote server using another backup program / method.

    check out the program rsync which comes with linux or any real unix system. It uses ssh so it's all encrypted !

    I'd second the rsync recommendation. It's REALLY REALLY good!

    hi,

    rsync verifies the checksums of the backup with those of the original.
    Besides that it copies cheap, because if a file differs, checksums of file
    chunks are compared, and rsync will only resynchronise the chunks that were changed.

    This is a nice article that explains how you could make
    backups with rsync:

    thanks.
