We use the repozo backup (and restore) tool that comes with Zope and include the backup repository in our normal backup regime (which uses backuppc). <zopeinstalldir>/bin/repozo.py Read inside the file for the doco. This tool is designed to work with live Data.fs files. Apart from some sort of live replication, it is the only way to go as far as I'm concerned, unless you are unconcerned about the possibility of corrupted backups.
