Can I verify/check if a partition (root and home) is encrypted?
If it's not encrypted, can I encrypt after installing, or do I need to install again?
I want to have root and home partitions encrypted.
I have a new install of 13.10, along side windows 8 on a Dell XPS (l521x) Because I was installing alongside win 8, I chose the "something else" partitioning option, and can't remember the precise encryption settings I chose.
I think my home folder is encrypted, based on the fact that there are ".encryptfs" files in /home, but I gather this is folder only encryption.
I have three partitions dedicated to ubuntu, /, /home and /swap, ideally I'd like all three encrypted, but need my dual boot to still work with windows.
As it's a fresh install, it would be easier to re-install now than later when I've installed lots of bits and bobs.
near duplicate questions: this question "how to I verify a partition in encrypted" references an "article" (actually a question) which doesn't actually show you how to check if a partition is encrypted.
