    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
