Timeshift v18.4

Timeshift v18.4 is now available.

Changes

  • #127 — Added option to Users tab in Settings to keep BTRFS quota groups disabled. This is for people who do not wish to use the quota groups feature of BTRFS. It is recommended to keep this enabled as it is required for getting the size of shared and un-shared data in snapshots. These columns in the main window will display 0 KB if the option is disabled.
  • #141 — Added a fix for nested sub-volume issue.
  • Added option to skip restore for @home sub volume
  • #9 — Fixed issues on Manjaro

  1. Hello Tony
    I was wondering if a Timeshift snapshot can be used to create a distributable iso for friends to use exactly the same downloaded software and desktop settings as I do?

    1. This is not currently possible. The snapshot contains files from the installed system, and the installed system is configured for a particular hardware. There are some tools such as Remastersys which can create a distributable ISO from the installed system, but the process is complicated and buggy.
