.encryptfs recovery (from Ubuntu 10.10 to some newer version)
Are backup .encryptfs/ user files recoverable in newly built systems?
Suppose I copy out the entire /home/.encryptfs subdirectory to some external drive (in encrypted state).
Then suppose I build a new system with the exact same usernames and passwords. And then I copy the entire old .encryptfs/ subdirectory back in to the NEW /home.
Would each user be able to recover her/his encrypted files? Could they just sign in and everything would be there just like before?
