How to make snapshots from home folder | @home

How to configure BTRFS Assistant/Snapper to backup also @home (as well as any other relevant subvolumes)?
I am aware that this will cause bloat in the snapshots, and that restoring a snapshot might cause me to lose personal data.

There is a “New Config” button under “Snapper Settings”. Create a new config however you want for @home (to launch it manually) or modify the one named “root” (not advisable)


So I changed the topic name.
