If I go into sbackup-config-gtk and choose run manual backup now from
the Tools menu, it presents a confirmation popup that has a checkbox to
make a full backup. This is using the sbackup Maverick version from a
ppa, though. Alternatively, I think you can set the amount of days
between full backups to 0 and it should do a full backup every time
Here's the ppa if you are using Maverick or earlier:

Setting Days Between Full Backups to 0 did not work, however, setting it to 1 did.
