It is good for securely backing up your data off-site. The "tahoe backup" command inspects your local filesystem for files that have changed since the last time you ran it. It uploads each file that has changed and it creates a directory in LAFS to hold the current "snapshot"—the current version of each of the files. You can browse or access old versions just by browsing the old snapshot directories.
