Help! Encryption


New Member
Im positive I remember the password for my external HDD. However, I reinstalled stretch with a non-encrypted LVM, and then an encrypted LVM, but no matter what, I cannot access my drive. It keeps saying its the wrong pass key.

Ive used it so many times though, I absolutely know its the right password.

What in the world is going on? Do I need to install something?

When I check if it was encrypted with cryptsetup, it told me no. So I reinstalled with an LVM. Still cant get in. And I dont know how to add this external drive to the volume group.

Help would be really really appreciated right about now...
