I have 02 questions, I appreciate your time:
1. Can you tell by graphical interface or commands, when was the last backup in fortigate v6.0?
2. Can backups be programmed in fortigate v6.0? For example every 7 days.
1. I don't think the FGT logs this anywhere
2. you cannot "program" backup on a FGT. But you can create some script and schedule it to run on your FGT. This could do a backup und place it somewhere via FTP. I saw some examples on the net.

The information about the last backup you can see under the system event logs
About the schedule, someone posted a valid solution on this link below:
saw on the same post that you can create the scripts directly on Fortigate:
config system auto-script
set interval (secs)
set repeat ()
set start auto
set script "execute backup config tftp config.txt x.x.x.x"
SCP and set the date-name on each dump. Been doing this for like 7 years and have 7 years of FGT backups ;)
Alternative, you can do the same with the API interface dump to a external repository. Take a look at the fortios ansible integration.
execute backup management-station from the cli. Keep in mind the FGTMNGR always keeps revision for changes done thru this device
