The NTFS filesystem does have a journaling feature called the USN journal, which you can optionally enable for non-system partitions but which is always active on the Windows partition (and can't be turned off there).

There is no provision for wiping deleted files, and doing so would probably be rather inefficient and add a lot of disk accesses - deleting files would take as long as moving or copying them.

The only reason I can think of such a feature as being useful is privacy, and for that you might consider encrypting your system instead, for example with TrueCrypt.
