Default I would like to better understand the pro and cons between rsync and rdiff

I am setting up a backup system for obvious reasons. I have succesfully installed an systemimager server and have a bootable disk at hand but that still depends on my discipline to carry out the command getimage (since human interaction is required during the process).

So I want on top of that to install either rsync or rdiff according the provided tutorials here on the website. But before I make a choice between the two I would like to better understand the pro's and con's between the two.

In case you would want to know I run debian sarge 3.1

Who could tell me in a nutshell the difference between the methods and make it easier for me to make a choice ?

Thanks in advance
