Quote from: ssfc72 on March 07, 2021, 09:13:49 AMEdit: I went to Synaptic and installed Timeshift. Unfortunately, I found that Timeshift says it can not put the Timeshift backup file, on a hdd that is formatted with the Microsoft file system. :-( So that is a deal breaker, right there for me, since all my usb flash drives and portable external usb drives are formatted with a Windows file system.
