Back up computer to a local volume (USB drive, local NAS, etc.)

I like the idea of Dropbox backing up my whole computer, but I don't like the idea of additional costly bandwidth being involved.  Give me the option of setting the backup to a local share, like a connected USB drive or local NAS volume. That would be both cheaper for the connection and faster in backing up.  I love Dropbox, but I don't want my computer continually hitting the internet for the large files I change on a a regular basis.

If you disagree, that's fine. Features that open up the utility of a product should garner support from an imaginative and aggressive developer. I gave you the idea, don't expect me to do a campaign for you. Take some initiative.
