I have a hard disk with a crashed Ubuntu system . while installing the system I checked the "encrypt my hard disk (or something like that) " check box . and now the system has crashed . so how do I recover my /home and /etc folder .
Ubuntu system is 15.10 .
As I am a newbie in Linux I don't know how to solve the error that's crashing the system but the home folder is really important .
So , how do I recover my /home and /etc folder from an encrypted hard disk.
After the Ubuntu logo it shows a dialog box which says "there seems to an error in your graphics or input devices" and done. I tried 100's of solution (not literally) and after some 4/5 hours of trying and trying now it doesn't show the recovery options or the dialog box. It takes me to shell aks or something like that.
I even tried to upgrade it to same OS. While in the process of upgrading it showed that no operating systems were detected, and I rolled back. Then I made a USB bootable stick and tried the "try Ubuntu" but it said partition cannot be mounted. I even took out my laptop's hard disk and connected it to another Ubuntu machine (as a external hard drive ) but it only showed me the grub files not my hard disk files.
