How to create of full snapshot of Btrfs partition with user data (@ + @home subvolumes)?

I want to create a “recovery snapshot” for easily reinstall Fedora with my settings, packages and configs. How to make? I’m using a Fedora Workstation 38.

If you really want btrfs snapshots, you can easily take a snapshot of the subvolume mounted at / and at /home which will normally be root and home respectively.

However, I am not sure how that would help you with a reinstall situation.

You could make a backup but then what would be the point of the re-install if you restore everything back afterwards?
