In my (now antiquated) .emacs file, I use
(setq version-control 't) ;; tells emacs to use numbered backups
(setq make-backup-files 't) ;; tells emacs to make backup copies
to append something like ~1~ to the files
You can look under the more-modern
M-x customize group RET backup
to customize all sorts of backup prefs.
