Re: After unsuccessful install , 2nd time SSD not showing in gparted

After booting the live/install media, I would check the ssd s.m.a.r.t. status using the gnome Disks utility. Also, you can check the kernel error ring buffer using the dmesg command. From a terminal session the following command might be useful: $ dmseg | grep -iE 'sd|ata' $ sudo lshw -short -C disk...

Re: Full disk encryption

smurphos certainly has valid points. But as a laptop user, I configure my computing environment for better battery life. I do not waste CPU cycles on encryption. However, I do keep financial information with account numbers in a dm-crypt+LUKS crypto device using a virtual disk with a backing file. ...

Re: Hard Drive Reported Full

I don't store anything on the disk. Apart from the data recovery software I use which is a very small program. I also don't use the OS Snapshots. I've never had this problem in the past. I use a source disk (the one to be recovered from) to a destination disk for the clone or any data from an extra...

Re: Hard Drive Reported Full

I am not sure why you chose a very small / (root) file system. With that size, you will probably continue to have free space issues. The release announcement system requirements states "15GB of disk space (20GB recommended)." Of course, the release announcement is a general suggestion. Depending whe...

Re: Timeshift screwed up system: Snapshots in Timeshift are hidden now?

Thanks for all your replies and sorry for this really delayed reply from myself bc. of lack of time, recently. Unfortunately nobody addressed my question as far as I can see. So, I'd like to ask for your help again. Two of the snapshots (taking up around 50% disk space) don't appear in Timeshift (c...

Re: RAID Array Label: Permissions Problem? (mdadm)

It shows up as "1.5 TB Volume" even though it should be "Data" (the folder I mounted it to?).

In this (non-root mounted) state, please provide the output of the following commands:

sudo ls -l /mnt/*/

Is there another method? There are many different ways to install software. When you provide details, the bet...

Re: Full filesystem after deletion but nothing on forums helps

To clean up around 14GiB you can remove the older /timeshift/snapshots/2020-05-11_13-00-01 /timeshift/snapshots/2020-05-13_13-00-01 snapshot directories. After getting back free space allowing use of your desktop environment again, I would encourage you to re-evaluate your timeshift strategy. Consid...

Re: HFS+ partition (OSX) alongside ext4 partition on backup drive

I have an external +2TiB storage device using GPT configured with two separate Time Machine partitions and a VBox virtual machines partition with HFS+ file systems, and many other Linux partitions with EXT4 file systems. Also, a Linux Mint 19 XFCE installation is bootable from the same external drive.

Ok, first I should tell you that since my previous posts, I removed timeshift. I now have a lot more space, but the numbers still don't add up (see my previous reply). Here is the output though. desktop:~# sudo du -sxm /* | sort -rn | head -12 ... du: cannot access '/proc/6285/fdinfo/3': No such fi...
