I back up both ways. I do a daily incremental like you suggest. My big fear however is that if the database ever gets corrupted, all my data is in that one big, corrupt metadata.db file. I don't like having all my hard work residing in one file. Because my backup is automated daily, the corrupted db file will be backed up too.
I don't have/use recipes so that's not a concern for me. I have over 2500 entries in my database with all the metadata set the way I like it. Too much hard work to trust to a single database file.
