In Coda previous versions of a file are not really kept around. However
some cloned backup volumes could still have references to the old version of 
your files. These clones are made only when the backup program is running, so 
they are not reliable enough for automatic restore purposes, besides I just 
had a vacation, where I worked disconnected for about 2 weeks.
