    Home encryption password not accepted after reboot

    Hi,
    I have recently installed Leap on my laptop. After the last reboot, the encryption password is not being accepted anymore and I cannot access my data. I had rebooted before and it worked. I am sure of the password. I have no idea what's happened. I do not have any update of my data or the encryption keys etc as, by bad luck, my backup disk broke yesterday and when I wanted to make a new backup I could not access my laptop anymore. Any chance I can unlock my disk? Any help greatly welcome!
    Kind Regards,
    Anna

    Re: Home encryption password not accepted after reboot

    cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda7 home gives No key available with this passphrase. I am 100% sure of this passphrase and it worked the first few times I rebooted. The last reboot after which the problem started was a normal, ordinary reboot as far as I can tell so I find it unlikely that the disk got corrupted. Anyone any idea?
