I could’t find proper category for my question. Please help me to find one.
I have a 240 gb ssd and I reserved about 35 gb for a second os (ubuntu). Now I want to relcaim it for timeshift backups. It is on
sda1 partition flagged as boot not auntomounted with b and Manjaro is on sda2. I don’t need to backup ubuntu os and I just want to sweep it away and use for timehift backups. What is the most secure way for it? Can I just
rm -r it, update the grub and add a fstab entry mounted to, say,
/mnt/timeshift point? Since the partition is flagged as boot, is it possible?
Here are some info:
