This seems like a lot of work to get multiple save streams going.
It is, but since I only have administrator (or even login) access on
half of the systems we back up, it's the only way I can guarantee that
everything is getting backed up.

Using your method, if the administrator for the box adds a new directory
or a new volume and forgets to tell me, we potentially wouldn't discover
it until the worst possible time.

 Whats
wrong with breaking the client backup  into 3-4 save streams by specifying a
portion of the backup job instead of using all?
Nothing, if you can guarantee that you never miss any new directories or
volumes.  I can't make that guarantee.
