Does anyone know if there are confirmed problems with BTRFS and Timeshift snapshots causing the system to freeze up? I 'm having this problem where the desktop will freeze for long periods (several minutes), without any particular demand neither on the CPU nor on the disk. It will then unfreeze for a short period and then freeze back.
I once managed to fix the issue by running “timeshift --check”, which got rid of corrupted/incomplete snapshots and resumed my system to normal. But this time the situation was so bad that I had to turn-off using the power button in the middle of the checking/fixing procedure, which caused corruption so bad my system does not boot anymore.
I wonder if anyone else has experienced similar problems while using BTRFS and very frequent timeshift snapshots (I was running mine on an hourly basis).
Thanks a lot.
