    Problem with encrypted home folder

    Hello there,

    i followed these instructions https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/0...in-ubuntu.html. I think my home folder is now encrypted but the "ecryptfs" folder is becoming bigger and bigger, now it is 20 times bigger than the home folder! i think something went wrong. Maybe data is not deleted properly. How can i encrypt it again? Can i just delete the ecryptfs folder?

    If it was 1MB before and is 20MB now, that isn't a big deal.
    OTOH, if it was 20GB before and is 400GB now, that is an issue.
