Recently I bought a new hard drive. I'd like to turn this hard drive into the /home. During original install I set my home directory up as encrypted. At this point I dont know how to move the home folder to the new hard drive. Also I dont know how to get it to automatically mount the encrypted home folder.

UPDATE: I was asked to add sudo fdisk -l to this, hopefully this helps

Could you add the output of sudo fdisk -l? –  Braiam Sep 29 '13 at 2:57
