Calendar for Computer Maintenance

Greetings, I realized that I never remember to defrag, chkdsk (see last post), backup, etc consistently. So I decided to add a bunch of events to my Outlook calendar to remind me. When I get sick of doing something or other every night I'll make it automatic.

My schedule is:
Monday - checkdisk (Don't want to do anything on a bad disk)
Tuesday- Uninstall old programs (they accumulate)
Wednesday - Disk Cleanup or CCleaner (they'll catch any old files from the uninstall)
Thursday - Defrag (now that we aren't messing with the file system this week anymore)
Friday - Backup (now that everything is as pristene as it'll get)

We'll see how it goes.
