Incremental backups on WinNt which act like a file history ?

    I would like to use a large spare drive on the company's file server for
    storing a nightly backup of the file system.

    However, I want this backup to be incremental every night, storing only
    what's changed. And, if a file has changed, I don't want it to
    overwrite the backup of the old file, I want both stored.

    Then, I have a history of all the changes, deletions etc which all the
    files on the system have gone through, and the ability to "restore" any
    of that historical data (with a granularity of a day obviously, not
    every single change down the minute).

    The effect would be similar to a revision control system, except the
    users of the system don't need to do all that check-in/out stuff.

    Is there software available to do this ?

    Thanks,

    Chris
