Why did I lose my data after I convert ext3 partition to use encrypted file system? I have two partition on my Linux system, one with root contain the OS and the other data which uses ext3. I create a new encrypted LUKs volume and new file system in the ext3 partition after some space was freed. I later deleted the old files in the old partition, but the new files in the new partition were lost. Can I retrieve the lost data even if in the old file system?

Hello,

 

It is not clear what you have done, but it appears that you reformatted a disk and would like to recover lost data. If this is so, you can accomplish this with either a recovery service or recovery software. Utilize a search engine to find such a service or tool for your specific situation. I must caution that full data recovery may not be possible. You may also find that what you recover are fragments of your files, which may not be of use.
