Re: [SOLVED] MX snapshot problem (folders in home missing)

Don't remember the details right now, but I think it depends if you exclude a folder like this /home/username, /home/username/, or /home/username/* you might need to also do /home/username/.* to exclude the hidden files if you use the later.

Re: MX snapshot problem (home folders missing)

I have to test it. I just hate how slow this process is on this old machine. lz4 compression is your friend. It takes max 10 minutes on ANY machine. In /etc/mx-snapshot.conf change to lz4: mksq_opt=-comp lz4 PCLinuxOS uses lz4 on the latest images and it's fast (with sysvinit). Ubuntu is also going...

Re: MX snapshot problem (home folders missing)

BTW, do you have any idea what kind of app / process could have messed up this file? Or anything I could have done? I certainly didn't touch it manually. I didn't even know it's there :bagoverhead: I think I figured it out. I will answer to myself and anyone interested. My Documents "folder" is jus...

Re: MX snapshot problem (home folders missing)

How big are the Documents and Desktop directories you wanted to include? (Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions here. I've just come down with a cold and my brain's not fully functional ATM.) :happy: It's okay, man! Yuu just made me laugh with this remark. I'm happy that ppl are trying. It's not the...
