comment How to exclude/ignore hidden files and directories in a wildcard-embedded “find” search?
@frostschutz The dot after find means the current directory: find will look at all files and directories under the current directory. The argument after path is a regular expression, where a dot would normally means "any character", to make it mean a literal dot we have to escape it with a backslash. The argument after -name isn't a regular expression, but it expands wildcards like ? and * like a shell does.

comment How to backup a system with whole disk-encryption?
Generally "whole disk encryption" means something like LUKS for the entire root partition, not the home directory encryption option.

Although there is a small chance that something like Photorec might be able to recover it.
