Unmounted successfully

I have read a couple of times all the suggestions from the thread:

Yet I still am too discombobulated at how complicated the whole thing is/was.

The folder is 20,5 GB, which I want back.
How to retrieve the space?
The rsync-log is 57MiB.

The location:

Please help an orphan like me:)

Simply delete it. :point_down:

sudo rm -rf /mnt/timeshift/*

Oh boy

Having executed the mount command^^, I went to Filelight and chose Delete.

Could not delete file /timeshift/snapshots/2022-10-09_10-54-23/localhost/.manjaro-tools.


Why not use the command that I gave you?

Executing the command

sudo rm -rf /mnt/timeshift/*

doesn’t delete the folder/ files… :frowning:

Show us the commend output. Ccpy/pasted and properly formatted — no screenshots.

Mate, there is no output in the Konsole… no whatsoever. I have nothing to show you.

If there is no output, then the command succeeded.

The old/ useless snapshots are still present on my HD, though.

What am I supposed to do now?

What is the path to those snapshots?

I removed Timeshift files once by changing the ownership and permission.

This should not be relevant when executed with sudo or while logged in as root. The root account has write access to everything, and deleting a file is a write operation on the containing directory.


Thank you.

So no wonder the command pointing at /mnt/timeshift didnt do anything to the snapshots in question.

If you have so much trouble with the Terminal, why you not just use the Timeshift UI?

You can select all images there and easy can delete it with the help from the interface.

I’ve been here for how many years…?

Still feel stupid on every other occasion…

Timeshift UI was broken at the time of the issue we are solving here.It was impossible to do it from inside/ the Menu.

The path is:

how can I provide more info? :frowning:

You can also go in timeshift UI and click on browse, which open dolphin with root access and delete the snapshot which you no longer want.

We’re getting there, I feel :slight_smile:
Wouldn’t it be safer to open it in Terminal and delete from the Terminal?

I am just thinking out loud. Last thing I want to do is screw sth up…

Anyway, would it be deleted permanently or just stay in the Bin?
Should I use Shift to make it go away forever?

Are you sure of that? Show us the output of… :point_down:

ls -l /

There is no bin when using the command line. Deletion is deletion.
