Re: Messed up my /etc/fstab file--mint won't boot now

Don't forget to use timeshift, it is very useful especially when delving into editing system files like you attempted to do. Also make a new flash drive of your mint.

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.
