Scheduling Tasks


In this book, you’ve learned about various tasks you can perform to keep Ubuntu running smoothly. Although some of these tasks require human intervention, many—such as backing up your important files or clearing the clutter from the folder to ensure that you always have enough free disk space—can be automated relatively easily by using the methods in this chapter. This will give you more time to do other stuff and will also ensure that those vital tasks are carried out regularly and without fail. They can be run either periodically or as one-time tasks.
