I haven't seen this issue posted anywhere else. It's not the same issue. Basically, I'm installing Raspbian with a fresh install. I boot into it and am immediately low on disk space. Here's why:

df -h
Filesystem    Size  Used  Avail  Use%  Mounted on
/dev/root     15G   3.3G  11G    24%   /
..... a bunch of other tiny partitions
/dev/mmcblk0p1 44M  4.0k  44M    1%    /boot

I can install applications just fine. But I can't create a backup with Timeshift. It's trying to back up to my /boot partition and not my root partition. Why?

    How is the disk space low? You appear to have 76% (11G of 15G) available

  • And it looks like you have 99% of /boot available. I think your problem lies elsewhere. Dec 17 '20 at 16:52
  • Tell timeshift not to backup to /boot. Not a Pi problem.

  • I can't select that partition. Timeshift just shows my smaller partition. Dec 17 '20 at 16:56

    You obviously aren't installing the latest Raspberry Pi OS
