Ubuntu keeps asking for me to decrypt my drive on start up. This is expected, because I had set up full-disk encryption.

How do I stop this now?

  • George's link explains how to remove encryption, but I wonder if the OP would be happy with a solution that required a USB device to unencrypt the disk instead of a password? – Flimm Feb 19 '13 at 8:39

Unfortunately you can't stop it. When this encryption has been only applied on your home folder it is possible.

    Are you saying there is no way to convert an encrypted drive to an unencrypted drive? – Eliah Kagan Feb 18 '13 at 15:37
