This article is in real need of extensive editing or a complete re-write (my suggestion). See also [[Btrfs - Tips and tricks]] which covers a related topic.
 
 
# '''Scope'''
 
## The scope of this article should focus exclusively on {{AUR|mkinitcpio-btrfs}}.
 
### All divergent topics should be linked to [[Btrfs]] (which should be expanded as needed) or elsewhere.
 
## The scope of topic of this article may necessitate a new installation.
 
### Content that exists in [[Installation Guide]] or [[Beginners' Guide]] should not be duplicated.

## I suggest a complete re-write may be the best method to creating a page that is easier to follow and provides the most comprehensive amount of information on this topic.

works with snapper-gui?

or the kvmp gui? If yes, it would be worthwhile to mention. Y guy (talk) 10:26, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

The answer appears to be "no". From a comment on the AUR page on 2014-02-28 21:15
"sysfu, I never played with snapper, but in your previous comment I saw ".snapshots/2/snapshot/root". This looks like snapper is storing the root subvolume some folders deeper in the .snapshots directory. So, this will not work with mkinitcpio-btrfs, as we expect the snapshot directly in /__snapshot."
