Thread: Excluding folders from BtrFS

  1. #1

    Default Excluding folders from BtrFS

    BtrFS is sooo great, and designed so that an idiot like myself should understand.
    I used snapper to setup snapshots for /home but I want to exclude Downloads and Documents
    and other folders but from what I've seen you have to create a subfolder to exclude
    folders but btrfs says the subfolder exists. I'm not sure if it's saying /home/feh/Downloads
    exist or it exists as a subvolume..

    Is there a detailed tutorial on the interwebs?

    Help mee plz!

    So copy and paste exact command invocation and its output.

    Sorry, I'm using 13.1. All I had to do was to move those original folders and create the subvolume and move my files over.
    It was so easy to fix that issue that I thought it couldn't possibly be that simple.
