    Default Installed /home under / How can i exclude it from snapshots

    When installing 12.1 i chose to create /home under the / partition, instead of a separate /home partition.
    When snapper makes snapshots it includes my /home dir. As the default setup of snapper is to snapshot /
    This seems to use a lot of hdd space, movies, music etc.
    Can i exclude my /home dir from snaphots ? Or do i need to create a seperate /home partition ?

    That means you are using btfrs (not sure of the spelling). Be aware that
    there is no recovery tool. You can loose all your partition if you have
    problems. Make sure you make external backups.

    operating system and version?
    file system? (btrfs?)

    since you seem to be indicating the system contents is more important
    than /home data i assume this is a sandbox testing system? (which it
    should be if it _is_ btrfs!)

    give us more info to have a chance at an answer...like, if you are
    running a command line incantation to do the "snapshot", show us what
    you are using, at least. if not, please name the application and
    version... and, if a windowed application, include your desktop
    environment and version..
