Re: Timeshift re-install from USB pen drive

I figured I should go actually see what it did in a live session and I just did. I have never had to use a live session TS that I can remember. Never messed it up that bad.

.

In timeshift go to "settings" and then "location" and from there show it where your snapshots are. Using the browse button only allows you to look around and does not actually tell timeshift where it is.

I had to start at the beginning of this conversation to find out what was going on. I clicked on the last reply from the main page with it reading state of the art and then saw a conversation about slavery. I was confused but I'm OK now lol.

Re: Saving TimeShift to a USB Drive

I plan to keep 5 boot and 5 daily snapshots if that helps. So far in my VM, the average for my daily snapshots is 372,000-400,000 file that has changed. I was thinking around 32-64 GB. Where is the timeshift folder again? I'm guessing it's one of the hidden folders, but in which folder, the /Home o...

Timeshift won't work with versions 18 unless you install it yourself. Started being added in versions 19.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install timeshift
Didn't timeshift begin with 18.3?

Re: Sell me on Mint!

What puzzles me is if you are so happy and love Ubuntu then why are you looking at a different distro? You are the only one that can sell yourself on anything period.

Re: Timeshift - how many snapshots to keep?

Thanks for this Timeshift discussion. I wonder if I could get some clarification on the above - how do you get into the snapshot file and just copy the file you need? Not sure I understand, and in trying to do that, I can't find any file within a snapshot that I could copy - most of the folders are...

Is there any way to upgrade Linux Mint without Timeshift? May be bash script?
Thanks.
Just go through the timeshift setup and set it to manual and then never worry about it again.
