I would second that suggestion, although I use the full version of
Retrospect (and have for several years with other media).

I'm currently using RW media for my backups -- they're a little more
expensive, but at the end of the backup period, I can reduce the backup
media usage by creating a new "only the latest versions" copy and put that
back on CD-R, freeing up the RW media for the next backup period.
