    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    Wiz, thanks for those videos. They are a great boost to get started on backing up Linux so data doesn't get lost or your OS can be restored to an operable state. Home backups are next on my list. After everything is safe I'll run those updates sitting patiently in my systray. Thanks again! jerry

    Wiz, That went smoothly. It is working right now. When it is finished, we'll know what was done. Timeshift renamed the drive /sdb1. Timeshift still called it dev/sdc2. With luck, it won't make a difference. The light on the external drive is working steadily. Timeshift finished with the...

    Wiz, yes 'Disks' says NTFS. Great, the rest of the data won't need moving. jerry

    Quote on the right-hand side of the line with /dev/sdc2 on the Toshiba, the text is truncated (cut off) - Linux Mint T something - is that Linux Mint Tricia or Linux Mint Timeshift? Wiz, it says timeshift. Will we be able to reformat just the 200GB partition? There is a lot of data on the other...
