Thanks for the quick answers. I used symlinks and so far no problem. The service gromox-snapshot is not listed in the admin panel, I did not set it up (I used the guide for manual installation) and I also do not use btrfs (I once had a bad experience: out of nowhere system froze and wasn't able to boot anymore, because no free space at all on / This was with a kernel version were btrfs had been stable for several releases. I was able to copy everything to another device, reformat as ext4, copy back and reinstall bootloader and it worked. And 20% free space on the device again).
So gromox-snapshot shouldn't be a problem?
