Yes and no.

Can a linux file dig into the copy and find files?  Yes.  Is there a
some nice GUI, that supports even showing previous versions, by date,
like the one on Windows?

Not that I know of.

Do you know of a linux graphical interface that would let you scan
forwards or backwards based on a time-containing label?  I'm
sure that would be appreciated by more than just me...:-)
