The activity scheduler you're talking about is cron, and it's been used on *Nix systems for a long time now just for such things. And since you want to perform a customized action, you would obviously need a script. Check out the man pages for cron/crontab and one of the MANY easily-found scripting tutorials to get you started. You might also want to check out one of the many Linux backup utilities, which would at least COPY the files, if not move them.
