Hey everyone, I’m apart of the recent migration. You guys have been absolutely amazing in welcoming us!
Now on to the bread and butter, and precursor. I have my root and home separated into different partitions(also dual booting Win10). I’m interested in backing up my root partition, as I’ll have my home partition backed up with cloud services(No data at the moment to back up anyway).
Next bit, I would like to create a partition for storing the backup on my secondary hard drive, which, has a few partitions already. I have an 831 GB NTFS partition that I would like to shrink by about, mmmm, 60-100 Gb(I’m thinking of resizing the NTFS partition in Windows 10, I worried about potential issues of shrinking it in Linux. Does my worry sound founded?). I would like to use that 60-100 Gb and create an Ext4 partition to store my root backup(One vanilla backup that will never be deleted, and a couple rolling backups), should this be doable with timeshift? What would you advise for and/or against?
