How do I test:
Installation - default with option to encrypt Home folder during
I shutdown the machine. Start it.
If I first login with root, root cannot see my user's HOME
folder/files/ they are encrypted.
* However, what happens on Ubuntu 15.04 and 16.04 (bug):
If I login to my user, check files, then log off fully, eventually
login with root, root can see my user's files because
/home/_user_/.Private is still mounted.
* What happens on Xubuntu 14.04 (expected behaviour):
If I login to my user, then I log off, eventually login with root,
root CANNOT read my user's home dir/files.
I can replicate this very easily and with no problem. I really
appreciate everyone's opinion and expert words. Thank you!
