removing encryption from apple encrypted flash drives


When I had an apple computer, I encrypted 2 flash drives with backup files. I now want to put those files on my Linux partition on my new computer, but I cannot get through the encryption. Is there a piece of software on the Debian or Arch Linux repositories that can help me get into my flash drives?

Is there also a way to reformat the flash drives without decrypting them, because I cannot decrypt the flash drives

I'd think that to be the most easy thing.

Use either command line tools or get a gui application to delete partition and then create new partition(s) and format. It may be possible to just format it directly.

So, try to format it.

Most disto's have more than a few tools. Some easy, some hard.

I think that maybe gparted would be a good one for you to try. It should be in or able to download. It's a graphical tool. It has a lot of other features than just partition and format. Remember, you usually can't partition a mounted drive.

Sounds like lost password, is this the Case?
Are you sure that you don't just need hfs-utils?
