I had a simple password for years! Yesterday I changed my password to a stronger one, but I forgot it. So I used recovery mode and changed my password. After that, I couldn't login to my account. It returned to the login page. So I reinstalled Ubuntu. ( It's in another hard drive so my home folder is safe and unchanged. ) But login loop was there. So I reset
.ICEauthority and I can login to my account now. But the problem is my home folder is encrypted and now I can't see my files. ( I know my last login password and I know my passphrase, too, and I have used them before to decrypt the data. )
Now : When I click on
Access-Your-Private-Data.desktop nothing happens.

I remember that first I changed my password graphically and when I forget it I use passwd to change it . So should I use that forgotten password ?
I know 9 characters of password . Maybe 4 or 5 first characters are forgotten .
