Backup strategy for solution with external containers to external network drive?

I have a solution that has several external containers with several gigs of unprotected images and PDF files. Since FileMaker Server 12 on OSX will not let me use the server's built-in schedules to backup to a network hard drive, I am using Carbon Copy Cloner to move the files from a local backup to the network drive. The problem that I am having is that the Carbon Copy Cloner backups are taking a very long time (approximately 6 hours compared to the 1 minute that the server takes to backup to the local drive) and I am filling up our backup drive with so many redundant copies of the container files.

 

Does anyone have a better strategy for performing this sort of backup?
