But I want to sort it like;
 
Week 1
Week 2
Week 3

This is not related to FileVista but it's about how sort algorithms work. You can check in "Windows Explorer" and see the same results. When naming your folders, you will need to pad your numbers with space or zero so that they are sorted correctly. For example padding with zero:
 
Week 01
Week 02
Week 03
Week 11
Week 12
or padding with space:
 
Week  1
Week  2
Week  3
Week 11
Week 12
