Does that make sense? i.e. I might be asked to go back and locate an iteration of a file that was changed\deleted at some point, for legal reasons. Is there a better way of doing this? I don't want to roll that entire chain into one backup file as I'd lose the history of file changes and just end up with the most recent files, wouldn't I?
