No, it is not.

Have you thought about LVM or other filesystems?

Yes but my boss does not want it.He wants it all to be seperated on 5 disks.I am searching now for 3 days and i cant find anything.I have no idea how to do that.And he wants the backup to be incremental.

Sorry, duplicity just does not manage the low-level filesystem. It expects
the filesystem to be able to handle the complete backup.
