I'm working on not-small project with several source files, i perform backups regularly. It gets bit difficult/stupid/boring. I don't want just to pack all cpp,h,rc files and mark the archive as mm-dd-yy, i only archive copy of file if it has been modified since last backup. Hope that gave some idea of what am i looking for:

Does anyone know some utility to do this for me? Thx.

I think you're looking for a versioning system. One of the most popular is CVS, which stores diff files every time you check in the code. The problem might be that you need a CVS server. You can run one on your machine but it's a security risk if it's facing the Internet. There are also some sites that will host your project for you for free.

NOTE: A diff file is a file that stores the differences between two versions of a file. It's generally a better idea to store diffs than a whole file.
