Default desktop that goes back in time

my friend told me about a program that lets you go back to any time you want on your computer

example

its 10:12 and you delete a file by accident or whatever

you click to go back to 9:45

your computer desktop goes back to 9:45 and you can access that file

is there a name for this and does it have something to do with raid or is this raid (even though i really dont know what im saying)

i don't know: it seems a little far fetched. It would make more sense just to use system restore.

I think your friend was a moron who scrued up a setting, did a system restore that fixed it and was like "WOHOOOOO I SMOKED A JOINT AND DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT COMPUTERS!!"
