I am using a cloned hard drive in attempts to restore some old files.
The cloned drive has 2 users, one with an encrypted home drive, one without. Both are administrators. When I couldn't get into the main user (with the encrypted home directory), I logged in as the 2nd user and changed the password.
It seems that I somehow broke the relationship between the encryption passphrase and the user. I'm pretty sure I have the passphrase. Is there a way to get to the data?
