Help, I can't mount an 'Attached' encrypted disk anymore

#1

Post by jistme » 17 Jan 2017 18:14

Either I am doing something very dumb, or I have a serious problem due to a sudden power loss at home during the night (while the NAS was powered on, but doing absolutely nothing)

This is what I see when I entered the key.
So the key seems accepted, but mounting fails.
(I think it should also mount as an action after having entered the encryption key here?)

Then when using the mount option, I get this:

Am I doing something wrong here?
Any proposed steps to try and solve this?

try going to "Disks > Encryption > Tools" and select "attach" along with the "Passphrase"

Thanks tony1, but that is exactly what I am doing (@ screenshot 1)

So the key I enter is accepted as being correct, since n4f says 'Attached to..' but it won't 'mount' the disk.
So I am just guessing:
1. I am doing something dumb.
2. The encrypted drive was corrupted do to a power failure.
3. My n4f installation was corrupted do to a power failure.

I don't know?
looking at it screen shot 1 the disk is attached but has issues mounting.
it should auto mount? (it does for me) and should be no need to use screen shot 2 for a manual mount.
maybe once it is attached go to Disks > Mount Point > Fsck
maybe the power failure corrupted the disk?
I hope that fixes the issue.
