I use it on remote backups when I don’t trust the destination (therefore, all 
encryption happens locally), and on local-to-local copies (copy home to, say, 
another partition).

About the only caveat is it cannon to synthetic fulls on the remote (but the 
encryption is solid….), and so I am exploring borg, attic, bup as well.
