Install snapper pacman -S snapper Make sure to have followed snapper’s recommendations regarding Btrfs subvolumes layout. Note that snapper creates a subvolume for snapshots at /.snapshots but with an unnecessary parent dependency on @. To allow snapper to go through the configuration step, make sure you have unmounted any subvolume (or other) mounted at /.snaphosts and deleted any corresponding directory. umount /.snapshots rm -r /.snapshots Create configuration for the root subvolume
