Recently, I was installing Ubuntu 13.10 and the installer appears to
have changed something in the first sector of my home partition as
Now, when I try to open my encrypted partition I get the following error:
# sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/ubuntu/home home_crypt
Device /dev/ubuntu/home is not a valid LUKS device
I don't have a backup of my header and would like to know if I still can
have hope of recovering the luks partition or if I can re-encrypt it,
backup the header and start a new life.
What is your opinion on this?
