    Is this link a good roadmap to removing snap? :

    You might find this Stacer GUI tool helps you drivng over the bumps in the road ..

    https://oguzhaninan.github.io/Stacer-Web/

    eg go to Uninstaller > Snap Packages

    and other dashboards for maintenance.

    I created /Backups directory. Is this the correct syntax for linking my other drive partition [sdb1] to /Backups?

    sudo mount -t Ext4 umask=0222 /dev/sdb1 /Backups

    thanks...
    does that mount command work? Why set the umask for ext4? I wouldn't. Use permissions to handle that. There are example options (probably) in /etc/fstab for mounting ext4 file systems.
    Not leaving backup storage connected all the time is smart, but if you have to manually do anything with backups, then human laziness will cause the process to fail. I know it did for me in the early 2000s. All I had to do was run 1 script, once a week ... and still I failed to do it. This is why backup need to be 100% automatic. We humans are lazy. Know it. Love it. Live it.

    I just put this backup how-to up: https://lpi.jdpfu.com/2023-Backups/2...up-How-To.html ... hopefully, it is clear and fills in some blanks.

    I go thte umask bit out of a Ubuntu Linux book and did not realize it was unnecessary for Ext4. The pitfalls of being a neopyhte.
    I appreciate your latest link as it may fill in some areas I am unsure about. Thanks again.

    Either the book is mistaken, or the type of file system it was mounting was non-native Linux, like NTFS?
    https://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php is the book I've used to teach beginning Linux at the local University. Start from the beginning and do 1 chapter a week, complete all the exercises for the chapter --- including the "extra" ones. In 12 weeks, you'll have a better grasp AND you will have learned things in the right order.

    Unix/Linux knowledge builds on prior skills. Really can't jump from baby stuff to 10 yr old stuff - there's just so much early development knowledge that is required. The learning curve is very steep, if you don't have a good introduction. The first 12 chapters ARE that intro.
