Backup -Time Machine for windows?


I am looking for a tool that I can use to go back to previuos versions of
files on my Windows PC. Basically I would like something simular to
"Time Machine" for the Mac, personally I just need to have the option to
revert to the orignal file/folders as apposed to the whole drive.

If you don't mind me asking what backup software are you guys using ?
open source or paid.

many thanks in advance.

I don't use their Timeline product, but I'm a big fan of their Backup Manager Pro:

Re: Backup -Time Machine for windows?

I've been using Second Copy for quite a while now for specific folders to an external HD nightly. You can set it up to keep several past versions of changed files. Files are easy to find on backup. They have a trial version if you want to check it out.
I also use Norton Ghost for full HD imaging in case of total HD failure. I backup with it sort of weekly to a separate HD which I store in my car in case of theft or fire. I've known enough people who have lost everything due to HD failures that I'm just a bit paranoid about it. You can get a 1Tb Ext. HD now for around $80 ( so it makes sense to have a couple backups.
