Is there a way to run Disk Utility on startup? (Mac OS X 10.7.5). If so, can this process be scheduled for a certain day of the week only? Is there a command sequence in Automator to do this?

    Which function of DU?

    Also, there's no need to do that since Mac OS does a system check automatically on startup.

    I'd like to run the "Repair Disk Permissions" on my main OS disk, automatically. I also have another USB mounted drive (through a powered hub) that often times loads as a Read Only drive. Once I "Verify" it, it can be written to again. A real pain to try to remeber to do manually on each boot up so hoping I can set an Automator action in place that automatically does this for me on startup. Thanks.
