Hi all , every time i change channel im getting the following message and have no idea how to stop it .

Creating hardlink to Timeshift failed!
The Filesystem on your Timeshift-Device does
not support hardlinks.
make sure it is formatted in EXT2, EXT3 or EXT4!

[Errno 1] Operation not permitted

Anyone got any ideas what i need to do please ?

It means your storage media has not been initialised (formatted to the ext filesystem).
You can either initialise the drive from the system > storage menu or turn off timeshift.

So if i turn off timeshift it wont effect the box in general.

If you don't need rewind etc then there's no need for it.
Personally I would initialise the storage media, plenty of threads on how to do it.
