I like BackupPC. It's in the Debian repositories. It'll do most of
what you're asking (I'm not sure about the "check data transfer" part).
It saves files to a hard disk, but using the "archive" feature can
export to a tape drive or other removable media.
It has a nice web interface and you can give users rights to restore
their own data, if you want to.
