Low Disk Space on external empty drive Solved

I have “Low Disk Space” showing in the Task Bar, it is because I have a fairly new external 500GiB hd installed. The external hd is formatted to ntfs, unused 465.68 GiB, the drive is empty and I do not know where the remaining 34+ Gib are, or is the figure 500 just rounded up from 465.68? I'm using ...

Re: Cannot write to external new HD

Thank you coffee 412

I have been trying your suggestion for the last few days without success.
When I look at the drive in Gparted, I see this:- /media/myname/e804b79f-d0a0-4ec1-a0c8-8c897160005e.
I have tried various combinations but with no luck, could you advise me further please?

Thank you.

Re: Copy Timeshift to a new LM19 install

Copy Timeshift to a new LM19 install Sorted

If my LM19 HD fails and I have Timeshift on an seperate external drive, can I do a clean install LM19 to a second new HD and do a “restore” to it and therefore recover my system? If so, how would I go about this.

Thank you
