Re: Ubuntu Update Failed: Locked out of my encrypted drive with all my school files
Yes, we DO mind -- about your repeated bumping. The rule around here is no more often than once every 24 hours.
So basically, you encrypted your drive, didn't bother to record the key in a safe place, went ahead and did a Distro upgrade -- knowing that you had no backup of the data on your drive -- and NOW you're distressed that you can't get to your data! Right?
This is what encryption is for -- keeping folks out of your data.
There is no way around the encryption; if there was, there wouldn't be any point in doing it in the first place.
Ubuntu 16.10 Mate, Mint 18 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
