Add extra BTRFS partition to Standard Parrrot installation with LUKS encryption
Hello - I want to run “Timeshift” to take snapshots on my new daily driver parrot install on my Lenovo T470: https://github.com/teejee2008/timeshift
Timeshift likes to a: have it’s own partition for backups, b: work with BTRFS for snapshots (will be /bkup)
I have upfraded to a 1TB SSD.M2 installed - and I want to use 500GB just for backups.
Problem: After installation I have a sda1, sda2, ahnd sda5 (respectively boot, ? and sda5_crypt) - sda5_crypt comprises of:
- parrot–vg-root - 37.7Gb - /
- parrot–vg-swap_1 - 8GB - [SWAP] (I thought there should be no swap on BTRFS?)
- parrot–vg-home - 827GB ( /home) - i.e. all available remaining space!
So - How can I install so I end up with extra partition: ~500Gb for the BTRS /bkup partition? What is best way to achieve this?
PS: I want to keep as close to the standard Parrot installer as possible
also I am assuming I can just delete the SWAP partition altogether?
