as Mac OS X in part is an *nix operating system. Will the filesystem of my computer be checked periodically? How to check when the next check will be triggered, if it is checked periodically?
My first guess was to start the "Disk Utility.app", but there were no informations regarding a time based check cycle. I can check the filesystem manually using the disk utility. From my linux
Background of my question, yesterday evening the system startup took a very long time until I gave up and went to bed. Today the boot time was as fast as always, but my MacBook is about half a year old. This is like 180 days of unchecked filesystems.. Just a guess.
