The FAQ says "there is no converter, and it is not really needed."


I already have a backup of my data, and I could wipe all the files on the drive with luks and then restore from backup but I would prefer to keep the files on the drive in case something happened to the backup files.

Is it possible to encrypt an already existing, non-empty partition to use LUKS?
