Hi all, Linux user here. Was migrating to a new laptop and had no idea cryptomator keys were stored in Gome Seahorse keyring. (I don’t use Gnome) So that got blown away, and i only discovered after. I was careful to bring all cryptomator files and settings folders across, but had NO idea the passwords were stored elsewhere… Ouch guys. I even remember seeing the gnome keyring and not copying it because i though “nobody uses that dumb thing”… (horror)
I’ve tried to recover the old GNU keyring but the old laptop is already nuked in prep for a new user.
I also was an idiot and left the default “remember password” on, so Cryptomator never trained me on the password. When migrating from ENCFS i changed the old PW for good opsec. But I knew I should have turned that “remember” feature off. But i was lazy, it was super convenient, and 1.5 years later, I have no idea what the PW for the most vital volume is. (Feature suggestion: Like signal messenger, challenge users to make sure they know their PW if the “remember PW” feature is on. They might be storing their recovery keys in a Cryptomator volume… I would laugh at my stupidity if i wasn’t so screwed…)
So i’m forced to ask for help on something unconventional: Any tips on how to get “john” or a similar tool to help me find the password? The lost password wasn’t a very good one, and i have a short dictionary which i’ve built with about 20 “password fragments” I tend to use. Shouldn’t be hard for a robot to crack it armed with my dictionary.
If anyone is interested in helping, i’d also like to point out that I do not expect free help. I’d be more than happy to pay handsomely for the help. In this critical volume is my password manager for my whole life, plus basically every personal photo I’ve ever taken… Cryptomator was automaticlaly opening it for many months since i paid for a support key and switched from ENCFS…
Fingers crossed and thanks for your time,
