MX Snapshot tool


Post by t rod » Wed Nov 07, 2018 2:52 pm

i have been using MX linux for over a year now. it is, by far, the best linux distro out there. my sincere thanks to the devs.

MX is installed on sda3 on my laptop. sda2 is blank right now. i thought it would be a great place to store the iso created by snapshot. i cannot get snapshot to point to the sda2 partition. is it not possible? TY.

Do you have it mounted somewhere? You should be able to change the target to something like /mnt/sda2 but for that to work you need to make sure sda2 is mounted first.
