FileMaker Server keeps a lot of data in a RAM cache. Even if the 
database is backed up by Retrospect without errors, I am not sure 
that guarantees that the file will be in a known good state.

I recommend preventive paranoia, have FileMaker perform database 
copies using its internal scheduling, and use Retrospect to backup 
the copies.
