which backup software supports a g.f.s. (grandfather-father-son) scheme? a t.o.h. (tower-of-hanoi) would be fine too.
btw: i've already tried "acronis backup & recovery workstation 10" which supports g.f.s. and t.o.h., but it is extremely slow in starting to back up to my lan ftp (on my quad-core machine) and it is buggy.
i will look into any suggestion.

I've been using Retrospect for many years, and I've never seen a reason to try anything else. At other places of employment, most used a version Retrospect as well.
I just found out that there's an iPhone app ...
New! â€™s Retrospect app for iPhone and iPod Touch allows you to log in one or more Retrospect 8 servers and easily monitor their backup and restore activities over a Wi-Fi or 3G network connection. .FEATURES
Connects via TCP/IP over a Wi-Fi or 3G network.
View all activities or filter to show only scheduled, waiting, running, or past activities.
A dashboard view provides at-a-glance status for all monitored Retrospect servers.
An activities view provides status icons and progress bars for currently running activities.
The details view provides full information on each activity, including source, destination, files copied, time remaining, and more.
The log view displays the complete Retrospect operations log for each activity.
