How can i get last week files

Is it possible to get all the files modified in the last week (Not before or after that week) . I have tried with date range it works for me for the period of seven days , not exactly for weekly basis .
Fetching records for seven day by
find -mtime +6 -a -mtime -13

As today date is 3rd June , it should fetch files modified of date range 23rd to 29th of May.

I think that will give you proper results:
find . -daystart -mtime +6 -a -mtime -13

Date range is not the last week range..
$find . -daystart -mtime +6 -a -mtime -13 -exec ls -l {} \;

Is there any method to track the weekly records?

try adjusting those day parameters. Also check if date on your system is correct with:

This works fine in my environment: 1st day is monday and it's 1, sunday is 7.

day=$(date +%u) # return 4 in my env (2010-06-03 Thu)
find . -mtime +$day1 -a -mtime -$day2
