Ok, so I had Ubuntu 13.04 with an Encrypted Harddrive option installed on my laptop. I accidentally deleted important GRUB data trying to make more room in the boot folder i think? So the computer would no longer boot up. Anyways, I installed a second Ubuntu 13.04 in a different partition on the same laptop, but I am unable to access all of my important information that is still on the encrypted partition. When I go to mount it to access everything, it asks for the encryption password... however, it tells me the password is incorrect, which I know 100% that it is the correct password. Someone please help me! Inform me how I can access this encrypted partition or restore the data in the Boot Menu/GRUB so that I can boot the laptop up under the encrypted version to get access to all my important saved files.
