I'm following these instructions for 11.04 to decrypt my /home/torben folder of my old drive so that I can copy it onto my new drive. It seems to succeed:

INFO: Success! Private data mounted read-only at [/tmp/ecryptfs.xtltX0TT/private].

but I can't find the decrypted files in the /tmp/... location given in the command's output. Where are the files?


Apparently the new decrypt tool for 11.04 didn't work correctly on my system. With Marco Ceppi's help in the chat room, we walked through the manual steps instead, and that worked.

The steps have been updated and can be found in this answer:
