Okay, so I just realised that my
~/.Private/ folder is huge (22GB) and that my
~/Private folder is empty. I tried decrypting the folder with
sudo ecryptfs-mount-private, I entered my passphrase correctly and got the following error:
Inserted auth tok with sig [removed] into the user session keyring fopen: No such file or directory keyctl_search: Success Perhaps try the interactive 'ecryptfs-mount-private'
sudo simply returns without echoing anything. Any idea what might be wrong?
I really don't need this home encryption if it's gonna take up so much space.
So, my questions are:
- How do I decrypt/unencrypt the contents of
- How do I stop stuff from being encrypted? As far as I've understood it everything in
~/Private/gets encrypted, but I haven't moved anything to that folder and it didn't exist before I created it.
My problems are very similar to this question: Why is the size of my .Private folder so large?
