Miss TSRs
 
What does Linux have that is equivalent of a TSR ?

I tried PSchedule to run a script but it never ran.

Are you referring to a "terminate and stay resident" program? You are showing your age ... and PSchedule just looks like a task scheduler? What exactly are you trying to do?

I think the closest to a TSR is suspending a task with ctrl+z. See: bash job control.
You can schedule recurring jobs with cron / crontab.

Or (seriously now) running them in the background with tmux.

You are as young as you feel about yourself. :-)

Cron is a very big pain-in-the-*ss.

Here is an example than cron cannot do.

I would like any zip files that are created be copied to an external drive at the time they are created without my intervention.

Hate to bring this up, but Windows can easily do that.

That's what daemons/services and inotify are for. I don't have personal experience with this, but here's something that came up in a cursory google search:
