So i made a backup of my HOME folder before i formatted my computer. Now i am trying to access the files in my encrypted private folder but with no luck. What are the commands that i should run in this case? Should i copy paste it to my current HOME first?

I read about ecryptfs-recover-private is that what i' m looking for? I really don't want to loose this information


this solved my problem sudo ecryptfs-recover-private
