I´ve got a question regarding the use of timeshift and wonder if anyone has any ideas concerning the use of it.
As a result of discussing another topic (Modem-manager-gui won´t start any more ) I learned from user @cordx that it´s a wise thing to use timeshift in addition to clonezilla.
So I installed timeshift and I´ve been using it for quite a time now. I must say: it´s a really nice piece of software.
I set it up a such a way that it creates weekly snapshots and keeping three of them. That seems a sane setting to me bearing in mind that in addition to timeshift I perform a monthly disk-backup with clonezilla.
teejee2008 (the developer) himself commented:
If the files [i.e. files not crucially important] are not important you can exclude those files by adding an exclude filter.
I think that option might be worth considering as it surely adds to saving disk space.
I myself came up with excluding /var/cache/apt .
My question is: What´s your view on the matter? Is there anything else which could be excluded without impairing the core functionality of timeshift to a great extent?
Thanks in advance for your opinion.
