Ubuntu – How to access an encrypted home folder from a dual-boot machine

dual-bootencryptionpartitioningwindows

(This might not be an Ubuntu-specific question?)

When I installed 9.10, I opted to encrypt my home folder using ecryptfs, but then I discovered this locked me out of my ext3 partition when I tried to access it from Windows on my dual-boot machine (using some free ext2/3 driver that I got somewhere, not even sure which one).

Is there a way to mount an encrypted home folder in Windows?

  • Unfortunately, it looks like no Windows support for ecryptfs is planned: Is there a windows port of this available or in the works?
