Unable to restore via timeshift unsupported subvolume layout

#1 Post by 4joeyirosh1 »

Hi!I have Debian 11 64 bit installed on my machine.

I have BTRFS linux partitions and also Windows partitions as I have a dual boot Windows 10 Debian 11 machine.My partitions are as shown below from gparted.

I am practicing how to backup and restore my linux using timeshift as a precaution so as to be ready when one day I break my linux by installing wrong applications or incase my hard disk fails and I need to rebuild my linux on a new hard drive with the exact customizations that I had on previous drive.

Using the youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QE0lyWodWdU I tried following exact same steps ie backing up my / /boot and home volumes with timeshift using rsync,booting up with live linux-lite and trying to restore using the timeshift thats installed on the live CD of linux-lite.When I reach the select target device and click Next I get message below and I am unable to proceed further

Kindly help in resolving this.
