Manjaro Fails to Boot After Restore with TimeShift

I’m having some major issues and I’m hoping you guys can help. My Manjaro installation got corrupted so I thought I’d restore everything with Timeshift. However upon rebooting I get the following errors:

Failed to start Remount Root and Kernel File Systems
Failed to mount /mnt/Storage
Failed to start Rotate Log Files

Any idea what the issue could be? Is it an issue with Grub? Is it an issue with the backup I made? Or is it something to do with the bootloader location? Can someone please help?

Delete your /etc/fstab entries - except the swap, if any and reboot again, see how that goes.

My fstab looks like this now:

# <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>

LABEL=T3	/mnt/T3	auto	nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show	0	0
LABEL=T4	/mnt/T4	auto	nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show	0	0
LABEL=SSD /mnt/SSD auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
/swapfile none swap defaults 0 0

I can delete T3/T4 storage and SSD (download buffer) entries and boot.

How can I do that? I’m stuck at the Grub menu.

Looking at the /etc/fstab it appears that it’s trying to set the mount point on my other linux drive (not the one with the OS on it). If I delete the file will it automatically generate a new one or do I have to try and edit it somehow?

It shoulld generate. You could just delete lines that look bad. I’d do it from TTY, or boot from USB

Well now it just says Failed to start Rotate Log Files. Progress?

What now?

I manually edited my FSTAB with the correct UID and it works. I have no idea what UID it had in there, but it wasn’t anything I have on my computer.
