Thread: Control Snapper Snapshot Space

  1. #1

    Default Control Snapper Snapshot Space

    Does anyone know of a way to control how much space snapper leaves available on a drive? In the MS Windows world there's a command to tell shadow copy to leave 5GB free or a percentage.

    I ran into an issue where my drive got filled up with snapshots (df didn't report as full) but nothing could be deleted or written to the DIR that I have snapshots setup for on the btrfs filesystem.

    That's what you get for using experimental software. Report in bugzilla.

    Yeah, end result I've gone back to ext4 for my home dir (none of my other dir were btrfs).
    Btrfs def not ready for everyday use.
    I also opened a bug report.
