Exactly this is where the beauty of rsnapshot or similar solutions is.
You do a differential backup that "by pure magic" (in reality the magic
is hardlink based) uses small differential backups to come out with a
full daily backup.
On top of this, your multiple day/weeks/months full-backup "magically"
(guess where the magic is ;-) ) occupies not much more space than your
original data does.
