I used to save files at every month end to a "history" library so that 
users could run reports at a point in time using the volatile application 
files.

One gotcha that I struck using this technique was that a well intentioned 
but fumble fingered operator ran the *normal* daily processing with the 
historical data in the library list.

This was not an experience I care to remember.
