A little more information would be helpful. Is this a single Filemaker file, a file hosted by FMServer? What version? how many files? does it run 24/7 ?
FMServer has a good way of scheduling backups.
Stand-alone FMPro can make a backup copy via scripts, but using the OnTimer Script to run for a week is not very reliable.
you can make an iCal workflow event in Automator to move (or create) a backup file to a destination folder. Set the iCal event to run every day.
If it is a single FMP file, make sure the file is closed before you make the backup.
There are other options, but you would need to provide more information.
