I had a 20GB / partition at work that dual-booted with Windows and it quickly ran out of space. I usually do 20GB / and 160GB (or whatever the rest of the hard drive is) as /home, so I intended on recovering the space Windows was taking up and turning that into /home.
That went fine and I was able to mount the partition and rsync all my files over.
However, I forgot that the partition was encrypted, so now all my files are sitting in /home/.ecrypt and /home/$USER is empty.
How can I recover my files from /home/.ecrypt and move them to /home/$USER?
I followed this tutorial: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Partitioning/Home/Moving
