A few days ago, I accidentally ran out of space in my encrypted (ecryptfs) home folder after upgrading to oneiric (Tracker went nuts). I noticed because I couldn't write my files with vim anymore, and one actually got zeroed-out. However, the problem is that now I'm seeing errors in my dmesg:
[ 4243.291883] Valid eCryptfs headers not found in file header region or xattr region [ 4243.291888] Either the lower file is not in a valid eCryptfs format, or the key could not be retrieved. Plaintext passthrough mode is not enabled; returning -EIO
So my questions are:
Should I be really concerned about these messages?
Is there any way to identify which files are the cause of these errors?
Alternatively, is there any way to do a check of the entire ecryptfs folder to check for inconsistencies?
