First of all, I'm new to linux, and i installed Linux Mint on my pc, then i moved ALL of my files to this OS, i had to erase the HDD where the backup was, so the only copy of all my files is in this distro, after using it a little and setting a password for my account i installed some drivers, after reboot, i cant login into my accout anymore, i put the password and then a black screen appears and then it goes back to the login window, i can login from Root or guest though, but i cannot see the files in my main accout, i've tried to remove the HDD and plug it on another pc with windows, from there i can see a bunch of files but all of them are .crypt extension or something like that, so, what can i do to be able to recover my files??? can i boot from console and decrypting my data? if so, how can i do it? or there is a way of restoring boot configuration? or something like that? please help, i dont want to end up lossing my information, and hating linux!
