I have created a schedule for Timeshift & run the first backup, but snapshots are not being created automatically.
I checked another topic & followed the advice, but still snapshops do not auto-run.
I am using Manjaro 21.1. & Gnome 40.3, Timeshift 21.06
cronie.service is running, I started it following the advice in the other topic, but the timeshift logs say
[08:18:10] crontab -l
[08:18:10] Failed to read cron tab
[08:18:10] Cron task exists: /etc/cron.d/timeshift-hourly

[08:18:10] SnapshotRepo: load_snapshots()

cron seems to be running:

if i run
timeshift --check then it creates a snapshot & tags it as DW, but it wont do it without my input.
The DW shapshop was created when I ran
timeshift --check otherwise nothing is created the past 10 days.
