Getting into a doubly-encrypted hard drive
« on: January 21, 2016, 12:51:06 pm »
Hi!

I clicked "yes" a lot during the installation of Peppermint (v5 I believe), and ended up with an encrypted FS with an additional encrypted home folder.

Now I'm trying to access this from a USB Peppermint (older, possible v3).

In the file manager, I can enter a password, but it says "Not a mountable file system" in the end.

How's it work...?

All the best,
Stefan

From the PM3 live session, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
