Re: Need urgent help - "No bootable device"

I am trying to restore the partition but it is not getting restored. But I can see my /home directory in command prompt through TestDisk that assures that I have my data intact. But, I am not able to find how to copy it to external disk from TestDisk. It does not list external device to copy select...

Re: Unable to install Manuskript from official sources

I installed it on my desktop this morning through the software center, but when trying to install it on my laptop it's not listed anywhere and searches won't find it. Are they both the same version of LM, and thus using the same repos? Edit: Looks like Manuskript was introduced with the 20.04 codeb...

Ever since LM went to an LTS codebase, my favorite is whatever the latest x.3 version is.

Don't know, but here's my Administration for LM 20.1 Cinnamon. No "Firewall" there for me, and when I type that in the menu search, only the second one that you noted shows up.

Re: Need urgent help - "No bootable device"

Can we restore entire partition table that I had previously at the time of dual boot? I don't know what "some blogs and videos" directed you to do, so I can't speak to what you can revert to, especially without any backups. If that unallocated portion of the hard drive is indeed where you...

Re: Need urgent help - "No bootable device"

Yes you are right I don't have any backup. Going forward, always have backups. May be I have lost /home partition (where all my important files reside) during ntfs recovery. If your /home was indeed on its own partition, and not a directory within the existing 30 GB partition, then it does not appe...

I'm not finding the first option, but the second one is for Gufw, so to answer your question, and if you think you need a firewall, I'd say yes.

It sounds like you don't have any backups of your important files. If true, this should be your priority. Boot to a live session of Linux Mint (or otherwise) and copy them elsewhere.

That version comes from the Ubuntu repository for their 20.04 codebase, which Linux Mint 20.1 is built upon.

I use a combination of Clonezilla, rsync, and manual copy/paste to NAS and encrypt/upload to cloud storage. I have a minimum of two copies of my important data, and ideally at least three copies with at least one offsite.
