Re: Why does Linux Mint include Timeshift when the main developer doesn't have the time to maintain it?

From the looks of what you did I don't think it would boot if it did restore from an apparent bad snapshot. When you "Wiped" the SSD and reinstalled it assigned new UUID's to the partition/partitions you created. The old snapshot has the old UUID's and will fail to boot. I don't understand why you ...

Re: Timeshift: strange behavior after deleting all backups

Formatting them would be faster, in your situation using the two drives make a snapshot once a month. First month on one drive second month on the second drive. On your third month format the first month drive ext4 and use it.

Re: Digital disorganization

Get a large USB drive and set it up with computer specific directories in it. If you rarely use the other PC's then having the things you value on a usb drive makes it where you don't need to go to the other PC's and can be accessed from any PC. "how do you motivate yourself to keep your digital lif...

Re: Linux Mint 19.3 'Tricia' What are your First Impressions?

Hi Haveamint What Kernal did you change to? Just in case I get a problem myself I went to the 5.3 series and it seemed to work fine but I ended up going to 4.15 since I never had problems with it. Bear in mind I am not certain it was even a kernel issue. It only happened once and really don't remem...
