Automate a Batch File

I currenlty have a batch file that goes through a folder and deletes files old than XX days. This folder is constantly being updated and data is being put into the folder. I am looking for some sort of task scheduler where the nas can trigger it to run every couple of hours. I have heard of cron, but I am not sure that is avaliable on my PR4100 NAS. I am not looking for this to be run from a windows, mac machine looking for the NAS to execute it.
