Windows Server has a feature - Previous Versions, is there something similar to use with Linux file server. I know I can write a rsync script, but maybe there's a complete solution available?

There are professional data recovery solutions, of course, such as Tivoli Storage Manager, CA ArcServe or the like.

Open Source solutions include e.g Bacula or Amanda.

Besides that - homemade scripts, as you wrote.

Mostly it would be scripts on a server (appended time/date to file name?) or you might try a wiki solution which has prior versions or a SVN/CVS server for versioning.

Ok. so there's no previous versions feature in Linux .

Backup software is something different.
