I am considering encrypting my
/home directory (I always have it in a separate drive partition) while I do a fresh install of upcoming 12.04 release. I have some concerns in this regard:
- Now I am running Ubuntu 11.10. Can I encrypt my present
homewhile installing Ubuntu 12.04. Will it work fine if I do it while installing beta release?
- What precautions do I need to take while going for a fresh Ubuntu install later on? Is something like retaining the same password necessary for accessing the directory after the install process (I will be maintaining same
- What would be the situation if I forget my password? If I do a password reset at startup will I continue to have access to encrypted directory?
