So, I want to change all my HardDisks and partitions to BTRFS. I want to have local snapshots and I want to have full remote Snapshots. My current Hard Disk Layout is the following:
sudo lsblk --output NAME,FSTYPE,LABEL,MODE,TYPE NAME FSTYPE LABEL MODE TYPE sda brw-rw---- disk └─sda1 ext4 Data brw-rw---- part sdb brw-rw---- disk ├─sdb1 ext4 Misc brw-rw---- part ├─sdb2 ext4 Stuff brw-rw---- part └─sdb3 ext4 Backup brw-rw---- part nvme1n1 brw-rw---- disk └─nvme1n1p1 ext4 Virtual brw-rw---- part nvme0n1 brw-rw---- disk ├─nvme0n1p1 vfat NO_LABEL brw-rw---- part ├─nvme0n1p2 ext4 home brw-rw---- part └─nvme0n1p3 ext4 system brw-rw---- part
So, basic installation will happen on nvme0n1, with BTRFS and the “ordinary” “partitions”, so I go with @home here. I have a folder namend “games” under /home, which I almost treated as seperate partition - can I just add an @games here? What would be your approach?
nvme1n1 will be split in to two “partitions” - one will be @virtual, the other will be @snapshots - here I want to store snapshots of /home and / locally - is this easily doable?
Data needs to have a seperate @, which I want to snapshot remotly - easy doable?
Same for everything on SDB.
I have a NAS available which I currently use for backups of the ext4 partitions via rsync. The NAS has both NFS as well as SMB shares available and is based on TrueNAS. Can I easily store BTRFS snapshots on this via NFS/SMB?
