If you don't mind installing a few macros, there is a process to create automatic timestamped backups - see answer by @mark_t in this post. The process only saves the document after X amount of time has elapsed IF a change has been made. No modification, no save is created.

Additionally, you can place each different backup in its own directory and limit the number of copies saved with the additional information provided in my answer in this post. This is just a further enhancement to the above process.
