|Re: [PLUG] decrypting backup of encrypted home directory|
Hi, I decided I want to reimage my aging dell netboot with Debian stable instead of the installed ubuntu because debian is a little bit lighter weight and this old machine is rather slow. I thought I would get some speedier performance with debian. I backed up my home directory onto my desktop using scp -r, but I had encrypted my home directory when I installed ubuntu. it seems when I copied the directoy with scp it is still encrypted:
michael@akira:~/laptop/michael$ ls -alh
drwx------ 8 michael michael 4.0K Jan 24 23:04 .
drwxrwxr-x 3 michael michael 4.0K Jan 24 20:01 ..
drwxr-xr-x 2 michael michael 4.0K Jan 24 20:13 Desktop
drwxr-xr-x 3 michael michael 4.0K Jan 24 20:01 Documents
drwx------ 2 michael michael 4.0K Jan 24 23:04 .ecryptfs
