View Full Version : [SOLVED] When Upgrading? Mount Points and Crypto in FSTAB

On installing 16.04 onto an SSD I put Cryptography. Those bytes were dd'd from a metal to a solid state drive. What came over with that clone was the crypto partition. I no longer use/want encryption.

I would like to use APTIK ( http://www.teejeetech.in/p/aptik.html ) a tool designed to migrate apps from one release to another. APTIK backs up mount points. I don't want it to restore any encryption work/schemes. But if it does, how can I delete the mount points and partitions, should it reproduce them?

I would like to migrate all user installed apps, their associated dependencies, the user installed configuration files and all data, without fuss. APTIK will do this, but I have to know what damage might happen so as to ask questions after the migration, if necessary.

I'd probably try to use rsync to copy the entire system to new partitions then modify the fstab as necessary.
