Why does the ID number start at 300? Interesting. I've seen examples where it starts at 1.
Mine actually started at 0 for the initial snapshot. But older snapshots get auto-cleaned, so if you've let it run for a while, you're going to see only higher numbers of those snapshots still active.
Tomorrow, I'm going to order a 1TB drive. How much space should I assign for root when using btrfs?
The installer assigned 40G and I've kept it that way. It's on an LVM volume, so I can increase it if I wanted to.
How soon did you create your initial snapshot? Was it a single snapshot? I want to create a pre after the initial install and a post after the update. So if something goes wrong in the future I can restore it.
The main problem in btfs is when you get "csum" errors in the filesystem. See the errors I posted earlier. When I restored my earliest snapshot the csum errors still existed.
So early in my initial installation, I could no longer compile changes using the "make" command. I could not fix it. I didn't do anything special or extreme for the filesystem to get so corrupted.
Personally, I think the btrfs filesystem and its tools need more time to evolve.
