After months of proper functioning has ecryptfs has become corrupted and rendered
when running (both via guest account and from live-CD):
root@ubuntu:/media/backup/home/me# ecryptfs-mount-private ERROR: Encrypted private directory is not setup properly`
I then tried:
root@ubuntu:/media/backup/home/me# ecryptfs-recover-private INFO: Searching for encrypted private directories (this might take a while)... INFO: Found [/media/backup/home/.ecryptfs/me/.Private]. Try to recover this directory? [Y/n]: Y INFO: Found your wrapped-passphrase Do you know your LOGIN passphrase? [Y/n] n INFO: To recover this directory, you MUST have your original MOUNT passphrase. INFO: When you first setup your encrypted private directory, you were told to record INFO: your MOUNT passphrase. INFO: It should be 32 characters long, consisting of [0-9] and [a-f]. Enter your MOUNT passphrase: INFO: Success! Private data mounted read-only at [/tmp/ecryptfs.uDWfDMCO]. root@ubuntu:/media/backup/home/me# ls /tmp/ecryptfs.uDWfDMCO/ECRYPTFS_FNEK_ENCRYPTED.F Display all 124 possibilities? (y or n)'
This created 124 encrypted folders which apparently hold my
/home/ data. I just don't know how to access this data. and when looking at
/var/log/syslog/ There are very many of the following errors:
Dec 3 11:19:22 ubuntu kernel: [ 1627.918209] ecryptfs_parse_tag_70_packet: Error attempting to find auth tok for fnek sig [1b62c525049b45e0]; rc = [-2]
Dec 3 11:19:22 ubuntu kernel: [ 1627.918214] ecryptfs_decode_and_decrypt_filename: Could not parse tag 70 packet from filename; copying through filename as-is
I would really like to either get ecryptfs working again properly or to at least recover my data.
help would be really really appreciated.
