Can't figure out script for linux cron job

Running Linux Mint 17X and the latest terabyte.

Successfully ran the ./makeGRUB using this KB.

I found this article on how to automate incrementally but it's for Windows. viewtopic.php?f=5&t=307

I need something for Linux.

Also, I want to do differential, not incremental.

Can I modify this to run on Linux? If so, what needs to change. And what needs to change to make it run differential and how do I tell it what times?

Lastly, in my /etc/fstab I have it set to mount a share on a NAS

// /media/syncovery cifs credentials=/home/myname/.smbcredentials,iocharset=utf8,gid=1000,uid=1000,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777 0 0

Which works just fine. Can I use /media/syncovery for the path, or do I have to use the full server and share name...etc.? //

Thanks in advance!
