Long story short:
Currently I have a
/home partition (with no os installed, no root partition) encrypted with
ecryptfs. Following numerous tutorials and guides, I have successfully mounted the decrypted folder from a Live
Ubuntu 18.04 USB at
/tmp/ecryptfs.5vNHafiU. I can see all my files and have access to them perfectly fine.
However, I have no idea what to do now. All the tutorials stops at this point.
I would like to replace the encrypted /home partition with the decrypted data.
After that, I plan to install Ubuntu using that
/home partition. Apparently the data will be preserved as long as I uncheck the 'format' box for the partition. I don't think I can do it when it's still encrypted, correct me if I'm wrong please.
Any help will be greatly appreciated :)
