I think I will have a "backup partition" like a 500 GB SATA drive and dump tar files onto that and then make that a SMB share. Thanks!

Try an NFS or SMB mount local to the media server, then backup that
volume. Yes, the data will be unencrypted, but if you are worried
about that, you could segment the backup traffic over another network.
You will have lost of ownership and permissions, but most of the
time, those can be easily fixed if a restore is needed. You could
generate a "find / -ls" report, and parse that via script to reset
everything. You might want to look at the locate db to see if it's
usable instead. The db file should contain ownership and permissions.
If that doesn't fit, could do stream a tar file backup over an ssh
session to a large "spool" volume on the media server, and back up
that tar file.
