Automation of System Maintenance

By mboyd ·
Does anyone know how I can go about automating system maintenance in Win 98, such as Deleting Temporary files, Deleting Recycle Bin, Running Scan Disk and Defrag? I would love to have all of these automated. I am aware of Task Scheduler, but will it delete temps and recycle bin? Thanks in advance for your help.

I beleive you'd have to setup a batch file to purge the temp and recycle bin, and drop a shortcut into the scheduled tasks so the dos window will close when done.

The way we do it here is to just run these out of the autoexec. A little crude, but it does the job.

You can schedule auto maintainence,by going to Start>Programs>Accessories,run the maintenance chedule on set times,in WIN98 it will clean up the hard disk of uneccessary files,scan nad defrag the drive,anything more will require suggestion of answer1.

I agree with the above answers . Just one comment . You can prevent files from going to the recycle bin in the first place by editing the properties of recycle bin . Just right click on the recycle bin icon select properties and check it in the Global tab .

Good Luck
