I have an extra ext4 formatted partition which I would like to ecrypt with ecryptfs. I have chosen not to go for home directory ecryption and having a encrypted private directory also hasn't helped me.
So, the remaining option for me is to encrypt the extra partition. So, I want to know what is the best way to achieve this. The drive should get mounted when I log in. And I should be able to move my Documents and other important folders in the home directory to the encrypted drive, and symlink them back to the home directory. As I save some passwords in firefox, should I move the hidden firefox folder in the home directory to the encrypted drive?
