The site in which I found this has since disappeared, so for my own sanity, this rsync command line is a nice way to backup your currently booted Mac...

# rsync -xrlptgoEv --progress --delete / /Volumes/NewDrive/

I'm going to blame Google Instant for the fact that I can't find the original page it came from anymore.
