[Howto] restore Timeshift backup on a new drive

Difficulty: ★☆☆☆☆

After a restore of a timeshift snapshot, before rebooting, you should replace the old swap UUID with the new one in /etc/fstab by following:

  • mount the swap partition using disks or partitionmanager

  • copy new UUID (The disks app will show UUIDs)

  • edit /etc/fstab with root privileges:

    sudo nano /etc/fstab
    
  • Search for swap
  • delete the old UUID
  • paste the new uuid
  • save by pressing Ctrl+X Y Enter
  • unmount swap partition
  • reboot

and Manjaro will boot as usual.
