    Im not fully understanding the concept of crontab.

    I know what it means and what the * symbols represents.

    How do i create a backup and run it with crontab.

    I want to run a backup every friday at 16h00 every week of every month but i find it difficult as my external backup drive is ntfs.

    Please Help

    First, how would you do it manually?

    Second, write a script so you don't have to do it manually.

    Third, put a cron job in to run your backup script.
