Hi again,

in my config.scm if I add this part

>    config => (guix-configuration
>      (inherit config)
> (extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" "--gc-keep-outputs=yes"))

at the end of my guix-service-types,
it seems to me there I have to make 4 brackets:
Or am I wrong?

My config.scm:

;; This is an operating system configuration generated
;; by the graphical installer.

                  (home-directory "/home/gfp")

The manual says that it is dangerous to use: "guix gc"

I agree that 'guix gc' deletes too much, but it's probably not
dangerous. You will just see some downloads and builds repeated when
reconfiguring later.

I believe 'guix gc' deletes items that are not garbage to me (but I am
new to Guix). Based on friendly advice I received, I currently use
these settings:

   config => (guix-configuration
     (inherit config)
     (extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" "--gc-keep-outputs=yes"))

Kind regards
