I am using Ubuntu 10.10 and I set the home folder to be encrypted whenever I installed my system.

Unfortunately, I forgot I encrypted the home folder and I reinstalled 10.10. Now I can't access my old home folder.

How can I get my data back?

you'll need that long password you were asked to save on the first login, without that you can't. –  sergio91pt Sep 7 '11 at 9:20
