basically there  is no hidden obscure data structures that keep FreeBSD working, so normal file backup is always enough.

You could write a shell script to mount the hard drive in off hours and copy all data via rsync or cp. The nice thing about rsync is you can use excludes and it will only copy deltas. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
John
