sudo grub2-install /dev/sda #and sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
# To populate all changes in this file you need to regenerate your # grub configuration file afterwards: # 'grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg'
#CRAP - 1ST PART RIGHT, 2ND PART IS grub, not grub2, also #'grub2-mkconfig' is interchangeable with 'grub-mkconfig'
Note that timeshift is in "restore only' mode
3.You may see an indication that from this mode, you can only restore a snapshot, not take one. Makes sense.
Thanks and hope you are well.
chown and chmod
Timeshift itself is currently confined for usage with local drives only. Its author, Tony George, as recently as late 2017 was in no hurry to alter that status quo. However he only provides Timeshift as a labour of love, outside his full-time work, so I don't blame him for that.
ust another comment... the dd command is very useful, but also very dangerous (as is anything from the command line, really). It has a pretty well-earned nickname as "data destroyer" because of its unforgiving nature.
Lets say that I made a Snapshot and I stored it in my internal HDD,
I can find it under /timeshift/snapshots/2018-04-24 11-00/localhost.
Can I remove (copy-paste) it in an external storage devise (USB stick, external HDD), and use it again.
Is gone work in this way?
I like it more bcz is shipped as native app & I don't like to download 3rd parties programs.

Sadly, Linux Lite are joining an ever-increasing number of Linux Distros deserting support for 32-bit architecture (which is where products such as LL historically have really come into their own). With the 4 series it is discontinued.
"In Linux Mint 19, the star of the show is Timeshift. Although it was introduced in Linux Mint 18.3 and backported to all Linux Mint releases, it is now at the center of Linux Mint's update strategy and communication. Thanks to Timeshift you can go back in time and restore your computer to the last functional system snapshot. If anything breaks, you can go back to the previous snapshot and it's as if the problem never happened. This greatly simplifies the maintenance of your computer, since you no longer need to worry about potential regressions. In the eventuality of a critical regression, you can restore a snapshot (thus canceling the effects of the regression) and you still have the ability to apply updates selectively."
