Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Every so often, my Mac kicks off fsck_hfs and as I sit here working I have to listen to the hard drive thrash for an hour or two as well as put up with some performance hits.

Is there any way to configure OS X such that fsck will run at a specific time (say 3am while I'm sleeping)?

man 3am is prime work time... its clear you simply need to reconfigure your work habits. ;-) –  prodigitalson Oct 16 '12 at 23:25
    
Why are there votes to close? Is this not a legitimate question? –  rmaddy Oct 17 '12 at 17:16
    
Its more geared towards SuperUser than stackoverflow. All votes thus far have been for offtopic:superuser so if/when the question is closed there is a good chance it will be migrated there. –  prodigitalson Oct 17 '12 at 17:34
    
Thanks. I'm not familiar with that site. I'll take a look. –  rmaddy Oct 17 '12 at 18:58
