Thanks for the suggestions but I don't think I can get filebox to work
on N800/OS2008, and the rsync gui app doesn't work on OS2008 either.

Maybe a few terminal commands could do the job?

The built in file manager and manually copying files from the terminal
will work but are error prone and fiddly to figure out what has been
copied already and what is new.

PS. To clarify, I will be taking photos on holiday and want to backup
the photos on the SD(s) to another SD incrementally daily. The
internal SD may get full and I will swap it out for another one.

The alternative would be to bring a netbook and copy the photos to the HDD.
