I was able to do this and it booted fine (after a boot repair!) but for reasons I don't understand, although Timeshift restored all the installed programs from my 250gb drive it did not restore the settings, configurations and customisations in the programs e.g. my Thunderbird accounts, Firefox settings, etc.,not even my desktop screen settings, panel settings, etc? I tried re-installing Mint and restoring again but same problem. I even tried setting up the 120gb drive as a dual boot (it was, and worked, previously) but same problem with Timeshift. I have restored from Timeshift many times very successfully and this is the first time this has happened. Any ideas anyone, please!
