software request 

I want a "log roll utility, but for my documents"

- I have personal documents scattered around my filesystem
- They cannot be moved, they must remain where they are
- I am willing to upkeep a list of globs that it should check
- If I edit a document, I want the utility to notice when it is run and make a copy of the file with the date in the filename
(For example, it notices that "foo.txt" changed today, so it makes a copy of "foo.txt" as "foo.20220712.txt")
- This will be running on Windows 10

This feels like something similar to a log rolling utility, and I know how to build it, but I'm interested to see if there are any existing solutions that I can adopt or learn from. Do you know of any?
