I've looked around at a few places and thought I'd post here after I've poked around a bit to find my own answer... so here it goes:

I'd like to set a cron for x number of minutes to poll a directory copy all pictures to a certain dir, mp3's to another and unpack any zip, rar ect files... even as far as ones buried in folders and then delete the whole mess once everything's been moved out of my upload dir.

I know ubuntu can do it, just not sure how to go about finding the answer out for myself.

Thanks for reading.
