Timeshift Preview


I’m working on some changes for Timeshift. The UI has been re-designed to make it easier to use. The update is currently under testing and will be available by first week of October.

What’s New

Better status display

The status bar has been redesigned to display the status in a better way. It will warn you if the disk is full, if the disk is offline or if scheduled snapshots are disabled. It also displays the number of snapshots and remaining free space.
