    Default Re: I cannot mount encrypted partition

    I use such disks and no problem. So you use codes like

    Code:
    sudo cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sdx# MyDisk
    sudo mount /dev/mapper/MyDisk /mnt/somewhere
    First of all, are you really absolutely sure your disk is sda4? Why do you use as partition name luks-...? I'm not sure if it is required (I don't think so), but I use disk's label. Otherwise, I'd check the disk with SMART and testdisk to see if it is not corrupted.

    Please show the complete command which produced the error message above.

    Do you use a passphrase or a key file to unlock your partition?

    Best regards
