There are some products that are pretty useful for this; depends on what
you're willing to pay and what platform you're on and what resources
your computer has. If you're on a PC, check out Save Butt (which I
have demo-ed and liked) at
or Aladdin's Flashback at
Both have demos; I think Save Butt is $29.95 while Flashback is
$49.95. But PGSoft (which makes Save Butt) has apparently been
acquired by Novell, so I wouldn't make any bets on Save Butt's staying
power, although it is a really good program.
Of course if you're not on a PC (or Mac) then this doesn't help you at
