What if I have just made an important change and messed something up? Is this part of Dropboxes functionality?

I am considering hosting a Dropbox myself for own usage on a virtual machine, so I can also have back-ups and have more than 2GB in space.

Can iFolder offer this functionality? Is there even software available that allows to be self-hosted and offers remotely as good functionality?

You can get a lot more than 2GB with Dropbox. And yes, Dropbox has rollback functionality if you screw something up. – ceejayoz Jun 19 '11 at 15:58

The only one I know off is SparkleShare. It's brand new and a heavy beta, approach with caution. THey are still working on Windows-clients but OSX & Linux are "workable".

iFolder doesn't offer versioning functionality, like Dropbox or Subversion. You can just restore manually a backup from your iFolder server if you have some issue. Another possibility is to use SVN over an iFolder folder.
