[SOLVED]Timeshift - selected snapshot device is not system disk

Post by krasimirpetrov »

Hello all.
I have one problem.

I create partition in my hdd hard disk, my Linux system is installed on SSD.

Partition is Btrfs and is marked as system, but the timeshit still does not accept it.

How can I solve this problem?

Never tried Btrfs

Did you try using ext4 for the partition?....usually works fine.

Hey, thanks for help.

I thought it worked with only Btrfs, I did my partition of ex4 setup the timeshift and worked.


Thanks!
