I am trying to figure out how to add a new "backup path". I would prefer to have my snaps on my 2nd drive that I have mounted. However, it doesnt seem to show up in the backup path dropdown? Anyone know how I can achieve this? I would rather have my backups on a seperate drive in case my primary drive fails.
Snapper and Timeshift are not backup programs.
BTRFS snapshots are system-dependent stored on the / drive.
For backups use rsync, borg, backintime or whatever.
When you take snapshots they are by definition stored in the same volume as the original data.
If you want to have them on a second device, you need to replicate the snapshots there. If you search around there are many scripts/programs built by others to automatically replicate snapper snapshots
Ok cool I will look into that thanks everyone!
