Can you help? I keep getting the following message and I haven’t got a clue what to do.
Your time shift settings are wrong. You need to go to Timeshift settings and ensure it's set to save to media/HDD/Timeshift folder.
Is your usb formatted and mounted?
same thing happening to me. very frustrating. ive changed the settings to media/HDD/timeshift and it changed itself back to media/HDD almost immediately. ive tried initialising the usb which wouldnt work and rebooting and still no joy. any help would be fantastic as i think im losing my marbles here
The message is telling you that the HDD is not formatted to a filesystem that supports timeshift. (ext2, 3 or 4).
If the HDD won't initialise on the box, try doing it on your PC with third party software.
