Automated System Maintenance for Mac OS X

Why should you have to remember to clean up your Mac every day, every week, and every month? Shouldn't a computer be able to remember for you?

Macaroni is a tool which handles regular maintenance for Mac OS X's Unix core. Normally these tasks run on a regular schedule, in the middle of the night. However if you don't leave your Mac on all night, they never run. Your Mac won't wake from sleep to handle this.

Macaroni remembers the schedule for you!

Macaroni solves this problem. If a scheduled maintenance task is not run when it's normally scheduled, Macaroni automatically ensures that it's run at the next opportunity, whenever the Mac is on.

Features:

* Automatically runs maintenance jobs
* Configurable: Add your own scheduled tasks
* Custom tasks can be scheduled as daily, weekly, monthly, or at regular intervals (such as "every three days").
* Tracks maintenance history
* Displays results of latest maintenance run.


New in this version: Fixes problems affecting some Macs where the “Run Job Now” button failed to work properly. Fixes problems on some Macs where Unix maintenance scripts are missing and therefore cannot be run (which causes “No such file or directory” messages on affected Macs). Also fixes problem where the “history” window would sometimes not display the full history.
