    I would like to log my adium chat logs and then have them all transferred to my external hard drive which shared over my network. After this completes I would like it to delete the adium chat logs so they are only on my external drive. I would want this every night. Currently I backup a few folders to my external with an automation system but it does not to delete the content that is backed up (as I do not want it to).

    Is there anyways to achieve this, possibly with automator.

    Cliff notes: Adium creates chat logs, these logs are backed up to hard drive shared over network, Original adium logs are deleted, repeats every night.

    You could write an Automator script, save it as an iCal alarm, then create a daily event in iCal to trigger the script.
