    Timeshift & Similar Solutions - Safeguard & Recover Your Linux

    Good work so far, Andy :) Simplest thing in most circumstances is, if you are able to boot to a Live USB stick - to have a Mint Live or a Linux Lite Live on hand. Both of these have Timeshift installed, they will warn that they are Restore Only (can't take a snapshot), which is all you want...

    Our school is now running Linux

    Not my most diplomatic of answers, but I would challenge the teachers that if they learned Linux they would learn why we don't need it (AV) And that if they don't (learn) they will ultimately be left behind. I haven't used AV for 7 years that I have been fulltime Linux, currently 68 Distros on...

    Anne, always tell us, even in your Thread title, what Distro you are using that features the problem - name, version number, even desktop environment. Sometimes we send our crystal balls out for a service. :) Wiz

    KISS way to duplicate OS partition ?

    Sounds like you need Timeshift, Anne, have you tried it? I run 68 Distros from 4 different families and I have Timeshift installed on (I think) all but one that I am still working on. It is not particularly useful with BTRFS. Cheers Wizard

    dd command response

    G'day Anne Not until it is finished, which may be quite a number of minutes, then it will show files copied and number of seconds taken to complete. There is a switch you can add which will provide a progress indicator, but the output generated by that usage is usually not the complete...

    Movie Thread.

    Ta very much, Nelson - how have I missed this film? :) Two of my favourite actors, and I like Rob Reiner, including when he was Carroll O'Connor's son-in-law with All In The Family (which was based on the, IMO, better, original Till Death Us Do Part - UK). I was a big fan of his Dad, Carl...

    Help Install another distro

    OK, I've got that out of my system, now :) I was just headed in here from Arcolinux, an Arch-based distro (like Manjaro, but different a little), where I took some pics of my Timeshift setup that I apply across all distros. First thing I was going to say was words to the effect of "you know...

    Help Install another distro

    What I'll do next is to show you how I have my Timeshift configured, with a view to your taking a full snapshot of your working distro to be stored to your 4TB drive. As part of that, we may get you to take a leap of faith and blow away existing snapshots, and start the collection of them...

    How to change grub in linux ?

    G'day folks, not being blunt, but some of you are on the wrong track, I believe.
