  A simpler (and far superior) way is to use rdiff-backup - it keeps a
top level total backup - and incrementals going back as far as you want.
I am running backups every 2 hours - and will reduce to hourly. It takes
a while the first time like basic rsync - and it uses rsync library (ie
same technology as rsync).

 Strongly recommended.
