Backup and Restore VirtualBox .vdi files

The command is this:

VBoxManage clonevdi /home/winship/.VirtualBox/VDI/WinXP.vdi /media/storage2/tmp/WinXP.vdi

To restore it, go to File->Virtual Disk Manager->Add and select your backup .vdi file

Can restoring a .vdi be automated to weekly replace the a saved current .vdi with a saved backup, thus putting the system back back to the state it was in a week ago??
