[Samba] Does samba have the ability to specify a backup location for files that are replaced/overwritten?

I do this with rsync. It's a passive approach in the sense that rsync
doesn't know if the client touched a file but if you create nightlies rsync
can check the differences and send those deletes to an archive. In fact,
this is how I provide backup services for most of my clients. Good luck.
Thanks, Phil
