    Re: btrfs makes old hdds appear to operate faster

    I still have it running here on one of my main installs. So far, so good. Iv'e been too busy to do any serious experimenting (other than that which I have already done). It's a real sweet install... and thanks for the bump. This reminds me that no matter how comfy-cozy that install is atm I have to now upgrade to /saucy/ and see where that goes.

    I also reminded myself to install:

    sudo apt-get install apt-btrfs-snapshot.

    It may come in real handy during this cycle.

    @Ventrical: I just tried Btrfs with my 128 GB Crucial M4 SSD System (Saucy) and it fixed my problem with the SSD Not being ready right away.

    I read your thread in the other forum and it reminded me to install 'apt-btrfs-snapshot' .. just in case.

    Thanks

    Are you talking about the post where I said that my Boot Folder hit 100%? If so, you should know that there might have been other causes for that to occur, for one thing my Crucial M4 SSD is only 128 GB Total Storage Available (I plan to Upgrade to a larger size Crucial M500 SSD hopefully some time soon, possibly the 960 GB M500 SSD if I can find a Website that sells it with out charging me Illinois Sales Tax, otherwise I won't be able to afford the $599 Price Tag.

    Yes .. that is what I was referring to. apt-btrfs-snapshot will let me get back to before the bad update - somewhat like a system restore.It is also a good tool if there is major breakage from an update. You can go back to before the update.

    That would depend . If you are worried about borking an install then it is good to familiarize yourself with. I actually was able to roll back from one distro to another. In all honesty I find it much easier to just do a re-install on a badly bokred system. But it is a great tool to learn how to use.
