total noob and I need lots of explanations
I need to recover some data from a hdd. HDD works, it was a fully functioning luks partition and Xubuntu OS. I tried to make new encrypted disk (also, wipe the existing OS), but failed, so there is hope the fileI need is still there.
The problem I see is, I need to somehow write the passphrase (I still remember it), so I can get to see readable files. I assume I am not going to recover anything until I write the passphrase and work with the unit decrypted. If I testdisk with an encrypted unit, Im not going to see anything , correct?
So, how do I write the LUKS passphrase to recover data?
All testdisk shows now is a LVM and several, thousands of ext4 blocks (I dont know if those are blocks, because im a noob).
Code: Select all
