• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

So

Code:
cd /timeshift/snapshots/

#then Tab, shows 2024-01 , press Tab again and a list will be shown, copy that list
Nothing happens at all when I press Tab the second time. It stays the same
 


Instead of just closing the terminal to start over, I'm going to type exit and try again.
 
Above, I should have said

Exactly what you put at #533, but when it reaches the 2024-0 bit, press Tab again to get something like I posted at #534
 
I misread the cursor block for a one, eyes getting tired.
 
Code:
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:~$ cd /timeshift/snapshots/
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:/timeshift/snapshots$
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:/timeshift/snapshots$
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:/timeshift/snapshots$


I pressed tabs 3 times
 
Still nothing different. If you're tired we can do this later. I'm tired, but I can keep going.
 
You've pressed enter after

cd /timeshift/snapshots , that switched you to there, now the prompt reads

oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:/timeshift/snapshots$

wait for my next post, please
 
You can either just

1. type in cd and press Tab and get the list and copy it

OR

2. type in and press Enter

cd ~/

This will return you to

oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:~$
and then repeat the exercise
 
Code:
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:~$ cd /timeshift/snapshots/2024-0
2024-01-29_18-31-11/ 2024-01-31_14-33-16/ 2024-02-02_17-29-15/
2024-01-29_22-03-09/ 2024-02-01_01-00-02/ 2024-02-03_01-00-01/
2024-01-30_18-55-35/ 2024-02-01_19-25-24/ 2024-02-04_01-00-01/
2024-01-30_23-00-02/ 2024-02-02_01-00-01/
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:~$ cd /timeshift/snapshots/2024-0
bash: cd: /timeshift/snapshots/2024-0: No such file or directory
oem@oem-Lenovo-G50-70:~$ cd
 
I think maybe I'm too tired to understand! I don't want to frustrate you with all of this. I just don't know what it is I'm doing wrong. I think I'm putting the same command in, but sometimes it looks different.
 
No, you're legend - exactly what I was after.

Let me digest it.
 
Just backspace the cd to remove it and you can Exit Terminal, and you're done for now.

I have to do a few things, and I'll try to leave correct and correct instructions for examining the size of a couple of those snapshots.

Cheers
 
That's clear and correct, lol

I think I'm just tired. I looked back through all the commands. Normally I wouldn't have a problem putting it all together. Being tired makes it harder and I get confused.
 
I'll be back in the morning to look at the commands
 
That's amazing! I can see my monitor, HDMI connection with resolution (you probably can even tell that it's a high speed HDMI and my monitor won't work with an older one)

My phone, it's a Samsung, it's tethered, not using a wifi hotspot, and debugging enabled.

My keyboard and mouse are wireless, Logitech....

This is incredible!
What amazes me even more is that I know what some of this is! Wow! I'm blown away!
Brings joy to my heart, to see the 'light' go on in someones' head.
Way to go Sherri is a cat!!!

I found several years ago that it did no good to tax my brain when I was very tired. The old brain refused to retain anything I tried to put in it.
Time is better spent resting up and then attacking things again. {I think that is one reason we human beings require sleep}.
Sweet dreams Sherri

The part I was most looking for is the following, which in fact is a table

2024-01-29_18-31-11/ 2024-01-31_14-33-16/ 2024-02-02_17-29-15/ 2024-01-29_22-03-09/ 2024-02-01_01-00-02/ 2024-02-03_01-00-01/ 2024-01-30_18-55-35/ 2024-02-01_19-25-24/ 2024-02-04_01-00-01/ 2024-01-30_23-00-02/ 2024-02-02_01-00-01/

From where you first posted it, at #550, it can be read following the arrows

If you would oblige me, I would like you to run a "du -ah" on just a few of these - that's the command that spools out a lot of output, and leaves you on completion a figure in G's at bottom left.

So the commands for these are as follows

1.
Code:
du -ah /timeshift/snapshots/2024-01-29_18-31-11/

2.
Code:
 du -ah /timeshift/snapshots/2024-01-29_22-03-09/

3.
Code:
du -ah /timeshift/snapshots/2024-01-30_18-55-35/

4.
Code:
du -ah /timeshift/snapshots/2024-01-30_23-00-02/

and

5.
Code:
 du -ah /timeshift/snapshots/2024-02-03_01-00-01/

No hurry for these, when it suits, and if you can just number the results, and I am only interested in the gigabyte/megabyte figures, so it may resemble the following

1. 8G
2. 4G
3. 8G
4. 500M
5. 1G

TIA
