If the machine has,the file system installed on top of a lvm (Logical Volume), you can create a 'snapshot', but would then need to backup the data.  Rdiff-backup is one option.  Rdiff-backup-web is a web interface to access backup copies.

None of this will be as seamless as VSS/shadow copies in Windows.  This is as close as it gets for free.
