rezza, choose RSYNC. At the Select snapshot location screen, choose a location that isn't your hard drive (the first selection). Then click the "Next" button and change the number of daily snapshots to 0. That will set up Timeshift to only make backups when you request it to make one.

Hope this helps.

rezza, because of the small size of your linux partitions, you should store your backups on an external drive. A 32G thumb drive would be a good choice, otherwise you will continue to have this problem. In fact, your partitions are a bit small for doing any compiling. On a 1TB drive, why did you dedicate 700G for personal use? Unless you're keeping movies on your computer, there's no need for that much room for personal data.

If I were you, I'd blow away one of 300G partitions, expand the other 300G partition to 500G and create a 100G partition for backups. Blow away the partitions you created for linux, and create 2 new partitions for linux, a 50G for your root partition, 150G for your home partition.

Please don't take my recommendations as criticism of your skills or knowledge. If you were using a lighter distribution of linux, the current partition sizes might be OK but you'd still need external storage for backups. I'd be happy to continue to assist you however you decide to proceed.

Actually i said in #1 post , i think i didn't correctly partition ...

I don't keeping my movies in computer .
For now i have about 500G free space on my hard .
Unfortunately i don't know how to change my partitions size . If i know how to do that , certainly i change my partitions size in that type you said .
This picture was taken in windows disk management .
Please guide me to change the partition in best type to solve this problem .

rezza, in linux open a terminal and run the following commands then post the results back here.

Code: Select all

blkid

Code: Select all

lsblk


Once I see the results I'll be able to devise the best way to accomplish the desired results tomorrow.

That will return nothing. It should be sudo blkid.

If you haven't done so already, you really ought to make a backup of your treasured stuff and put it away in a safe place. You might be headed for disaster.

catweazel, you beat me to it. That was my next suggestion, for him to back up everything, both Winblows and Linux that he can't afford to lose, while I was working out how best to repartition his drive. I'm going to try not to touch any of his winblows partitions.

Thanks for catching my brain fart.

The problem is you're dealing with a newcomer so you can't guarantee the safety of any data.

^ this. Frankly I wouldn't touch any of the partitions. His only problem is a bad Timeshift configuration, with snapshots being bigger than his root partition, so clearly he's got some other mount point included. That's the only thing that needs addressing here (as I mentioned several times above I'm sure).

I haven't read the entire thread. I only saw the danger signs.

Well, we know he's got about 17 GB free on the root partition, that's plenty unless he starts installing lots of applications and keeps lots of snapshots at the same time. Otherwise the other partition has got plenty of free space for now.

I didn't installed lots of applications !
I just installed docker and telegram and snapcroft .
How do you get that i installed lots of applications ?
If necessary , i can remove them .
But generally i don't think i installed lots .

Fire up updatemanager, go into menu kernel and remove old kernels.

There is no need to sent fotos! copy text from terminal and insert it here.

I had three kernels .
4.0.20.21 (i'm not sure for numbers exactly )
4.15.0.45
4.15.0.46
I removed 4.0.20.21 and problem was solved but temporary .
And after some hours , problem was returned again .
You say , should i remove 4.15.0.45 and i have just one kernel ??

I know .
As i mentioned in many different posts , i couldn't login to desktop for running commands in terminal area . I stuck in login loop .
And i had to switch to terminal area from login page by ctrl+alt+F1 and ran commands there .
Because of this , i couldn't copy&paste results of commands and i had to take screenShot until i nuked the timeshift .
After i nuked the timeshift , i didn't stuck in login loop and i log in to desktop every time .
And as you saw in my previous post , i used copy&paste .

Despite having removed the timeshift.json file? It should stop taking snapshots without it. Or did you already reconfigure timeshift? In the latter case the configuration is still wrong if it keeps filling up your drive. ;)
