IF you are using your btrfs partition for both root / and /home this may contribute to your disk usage problem.
Terminal command df -h confirms partitions used for both root / and /home
Earlier self was advised best keep root / and /home in separate partitions.
IF** using both on same partition, consider your /home location may contribute more to your disk usage problem than btrfs, so perhaps need consider creating separate partition to use for /home
Others more knowledgeable than self know how to safely move /home from one partition to another.
It is safe to turn off it is safe to remove snapshots up to the 0 number
only use snapper utilities to remove/view snap shots. SEE INSTRUCTIONS above
If you have home on the same partition as root that can take up a good amount of space… Moving it to it’s own space will help a lot.
Make a backup of important things before doing things like this;)
1 Prepare a partition to copy the home files. Make and format it with a Linux file system ext4 or xfs are recommended. Large enough to at least hold all home data
2 copy all data from current home to new partition. Note only the data IN home not home itself
3 log into terminal mode.At boot press e find line starting linux or linuxefi go to end (it wraps) add space and 3 press F10 to continue boot
Log in to terminal as root. change to /home (cd /home) erase all files (rm -R *) NOTE be very sure you are in home if in root / then you erase the whole system because you are root :'(
run command line yast. type yast select partitions and set the new partition to mount as /home. Be sure not to format it.
Quit yast and reboot (type reboot)
If all went well your home should now be on the new partition and you have freed up a lot of space on /
Take it slow and be sure you understand each step before proceeding. If you don’t understand something ask do not guess
Sorry if i post this in this thread and in another one, but i really need help :
Because i get crashes around 4 or 5 times a week, now i really need to get rid of this ***** snapper : tell me how can i kick it away from my system, please
No you did it Backwards remove all but first snapshot then remove snapper. Snapper is embedded into the BTRFS file system. it is part and parcel removing the first snap will break the file system. Manually removing snaps or snap directries will break the file system. Use only snapper utilities to modify snaps
No. I am not going to do anything. Too late. I have been through too much instability.
I have been working for days to adapt from 13.1 .
I have no time for such things, sorry. Though i’d love to have such time, like when i was the university.
Anyway, i thank you very much for your help.
