Flow for file backup on sharepoint - recurence


I would like to create a flow.
It should be making backup of a excel file ( automatically every X days ).

Also I have one excel file on sharepoint "temp.xlsx" and a folder "backup".
I would like to create a flow, which every X days make a copy of "example.xlsx" and put it into folder "backup" with a new name (for example "temp_4/13/22.xlsx")

Do you have any ideas ? It is possible ?
I have no experience with Power Automate

Yes it is - I believe you'd could use "Get file content" and direct it to a certain folder that your excel sheet would like --> "Copy file" to new location & allow it to either save over your existing file, or save as a file with a new name.
