    moving .cache

    Not strictly a security, but more a privacy question, but I have my personal files as well as swap encrypted (Didn't want to encrypt the entire home).

    Without being paranoid, the .cache folder still has a fair amount of stuff that I'd prefer to also be encrypted.

    Tried to delete .cache and created a soft link to a folder on the encrypted folder. That worked until I rebooted where it got rid of the link and re-created .cache

    Any other suggestions.

    bit of a long shot but check fstab and have it mount /home last.

    (So your encrypted mount is mounted before home allowing link from home to be created ?)

    As ususal the problem is in the chair

    My symboloc link was wrong. Once I fixed this, I now have .cache on my encrypted drive, after the reboot.

    Thanks
