I have a partition encrypted with LUKS. I used it without problems every day until suddenly the password stopped working. Is there anything I can do?
I have tried with a different keyboard and from a different computer. I am 100% certain that I typed in the correct password. So (correct me if I am wrong) it seems to me that my hard disk must be corrupted. If this is the case, is it reasonable to assume that only one byte is corrupted, and if yes, can I try all possible one byte changes of the partition header?
EDIT: I should have mentioned that the encrypted partition contains /, so it was always in use. I don't know if LUKS does any write protection though.
