I have now installed installed snapper preview version of Garuda, now I can't install timeshift and it is conflicting with snapper
You really should have one or the other, not both. Snapper is Garuda-Next ATM.
I am not sure I understand how your topic relates to the text of your post.
- Why do you want to backup
/boot/efiin the first place? It can be easily regenerated.
- Even if you did want that, does timeshift even support backing that up?
Actually, in case if I harm my
/boot/efiI can copy/paste my backup.
It has happened to me twice , and then I had to create a USB media, chroot into the installations and reinstall grub in all my Linux distros installed
I didn't know that timeshift didn't support
/boot/efi, I mentioned it above, just in case it would help.
/boot/efi is broken, you always have to reboot off of something else because a valid ESP is critical for booting.
You can use
backintime for a solution here but I am still not sure I see any value in it.
Maybe I will keep my Recovery USBs ready in case, and with ventoy it's much easier!
You are right I think
Now that I have two of such bad experiences (of corrupting EFI directory), and if I look into it now, it seem easier than before to perform chroot.
