    Does this mean you can de-encrypt the home folder permanently, Jackupl? :





    How to Remove an Encrypted Private Directory Setup

    Perhaps an Encrypted Private Directory is not for you. To remove this setup:

    1. Ensure that you have moved all relevant data out of your ~/Private directory
    2. Unmount your encrypted private directory
      • $ ecryptfs-umount-private

    3. Make ~/Private writable again
      • $ chmod 700 ~/Private

    4. Remove ~/Private, ~/.Private, ~/.ecryptfs (Note: THIS IS VERY PERMANENT)
      • $ rm -rf ~/Private ~/.Private ~/.ecryptfs

    5. Uninstall the utilities
      • $ sudo apt-get remove ecryptfs-utils libecryptfs0

    Well... I'm no expert when it comes to this, so I dare not say.

    Re: Access ubuntu9.10 encrypted home folder on HDD A while logged on to HDD B Ubuntu

    to do
    ecryptfs-unwrap-passphrase ~/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase "login passphrase"
    do i need to log in to the hdd A (ubuntu 9.10) ?

    and if i can do the command while logged on HDD B (ubuntu 10.04), i don't think the command will work, because it does not specify that the command is for HDD A.

    I've recovered my mount passphrase.

    When I try to go to ~/Private on Nautilus, it tells me that it can't find it.

    UPDATE: However, there is ~/.Private folder.



    I learned the difference between ~/Private and ~/.Private:
    After logging back in, all content of any files or folders you write in ~/Private will be encrypted when written to the disk, in the hidden directory ~/.Private.


    Question:
    Is ~/.Private the same as my /home/ folder?

    That is what the above quote implies.
