I'm guessing you're talking about Rgui on Windows, but please don't leave us guessing.

If you run R under Ess/(X)Emacs, you have the entire session that can be saved in a (transcript) file.

Does your OS not put date stamps on file?

> file.info(".Rhistory")

          size isdir mode mtime ctime .Rhistory 1025 FALSE 666 2005-03-03 19:27:31 2004-08-13 10:45:09

                        atime

.Rhistory 2005-03-03 19:27:31
