Thread: Scheduled Tasks?
10-22-2009, 08:26 AM #1Scheduled Tasks?
Ill tell you want im trying to do.
I have cool app that gives me free online storage called Dropbox. It simply puts a folder in your home directory, called Dropbox. Anything placed in the Dropbox folder is backed up online. Then if my mac goes down, i still have my important docs backed up without buying a backup hard drive. It is also useful when I forget my memory stick for college, I can just sign in on the dropbox website, and my files are there. Any changes are automatically updated to my dropbox folder, when I next turn on my mac.
What I am wanting to do is, on boot-up or shutdown, is have my mac automatically copy my Documents folder into my dropbox folder and over-write everything in there. This was possible in Windows 98, (my last m$-os) and in Ubuntu (what I had in-between win98 and getting my mac) because they had a scheduled tasks feature or program.
Is it possible in os x?your a pc. your a mac. your linux. im human :p

I don't have a solution.... but I question your trust in online storage, esp since you mention that these are important docs!
Not knocking you, just curious :/
