My system had a Windows partition using the beginning of a 500 GB disk, followed by a LVM setup with a Volume Group and several Logical Volumes (encrypted home, root, swap). I deleted the Windows partition, formatted it, added it to the Volume Group, and expanded the home Logical Volume to use the new partition.

df now shows /dev/mapper/VolGroup-home having the appropriate larger size, but I can't tell if this new partition will be encrypted with the rest of home or not. How can I tell?
