I have another hard drive with Linux Mint 19.1 xfe on it and it does the same thing. If it were a hardware problem I would expect that the installation media wouldn't work. Both installations (cinnamon and xfe) will not load gparted, yet the installation media will. Now I will go to the installation media and make the changes to the eSATA hard drive (format and repartition) for TimeShift to work.
For those who are asking about "what I'm using it for" it really is none of your business. However as I stated above, I need to format a drive for "Timeshift". Timeshift will not work with an MSDos, FAT32, or HFS drive, of which I have all three for different computers. Currently I have an eSATA drive adaptor which I can just plug in any SATA drive and do what I want with it. I don't need advice about whether or not I should use the program. It Is Necessary! That is all you need to know.
Very frustrating... still not working...
