I'm in the process of moving my OS and data from one drive to another within the same computer. (I got a nice, new SSD.) My old home directory had an encrypted sub directory inside, and I'd like to access the encrypted directory from my new install. I'm trying to use
ecryptfs-recover-private. However, I run into the following error.
$ sudo ecryptfs-recover-private /BLAH/.Private INFO: Found [.Private/]. Try to recover this directory? [Y/n]: INFO: Found your wrapped-passphrase Do you know your LOGIN passphrase? [Y/n] INFO: Enter your LOGIN passphrase... Passphrase: Inserted auth tok with sig [BLAH] into the user session keyring mount: mount(2) failed: No such file or directory ERROR: Failed to mount private data at [/tmp/ecryptfs.NcWkVmQ5].
I run into the same problem if I let
ecryptfs-recover-private find the directory on its own or if I say no to the login passphrase but use the mount passphrase instead.
(I realize there are several, similar questions on this site, but none seem to quite cover my situation.)
