I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04. I then tried to open an encrypted document using AES Crypt, which I had previously encrypted, to find that my password did not open the document. I have opened and re-encrypted this document many times in the past with no trouble, Could the upgrade have affected the storing of this password? Would be very grateful for any help.


well, I can not imagine what process of the upgrade should change personal documents, but if you would like to make sure if there was a change use "sha256sum" on you backup of the document and compare the hash with the sha256sum hash of the document in question - if they are different now.
