Encrypted Hard Drive By Mistake!!!


Hello linuxsolved,

not sure if this is the right place to post this...but I have a issue I cannot solve and I'm phishing for the best resources so I can fix my problem and any other problems that the future entails related to Linux.  So somehow I encrypted a hard drive by mistake I know Ubuntu doesn't use LUKS by default but now my files are stuck on this encrypted hard drive and I can't access them.  Even better, the mother board on the laptop the hard drive was in has now failed.  I'm sure I can boot into Ubuntu on a Desktop system with a live CD...I think anyways but still now that is encrypted am I screwed royally?

(btw I have a bitcoin .dat file on the hard drive) plz don't judge me live and learn... thanks guys looking forward to hearing any feed back

from your friends at tbayhawks

I'm not sure if this will help but I've never used encrypted stuff before.  I can use google a bit tho.  ;-)



From what I read on those, if you have forgot the password, you may be out of luck. 

Hope that helps.
