I was hoping not to have to encrypt my Librem 13 in the first place but there was
no way around it. Now as I think about it I want to completely remove the
My reason: In the past I lost an encrypted drive and have never been able to recover it,
and I don’t want to go through that ever again! Now, I use the “disk” program to
encrypt USB drives and keep only whats really important on them, unless I have
a file or two needing protection on the system, I’ll use 7zip to encrypt them.
Please tell me how or direct me to where I can find out how to remove encryption
from my new Librem 13 encrypted hard drives?
You cannot, you need to re-install your system.
Thanks mladen for getting back to me & my problem!
Having had my Lib-13 for a few days now unable to really check it out!
So… please tell me is there instructions anywhere showing me how to do the reinstall?
There’s a lot of things I don’t fully understand about the pureOS yet and some guidance would help. My experience in the past was to download for example KDE-Debian and set it up on a DVD or USB & then install to a hard drive on my system. If that’s all that’s involved then no problem, otherwise point me to any and all instructions!
It will be the same procedure. Just download PureOS from pureos.net and burn it to a USB, and you will be able to reinstall it on your laptop.
Thank you taylor-williamc,
I’m off to the races now!
Thanks for your help, I have my 13 up and running now! Sorry for such a delay getting back here, had some health issues holding me up but able to move on now. Thks fb!
