The Calamares installer has an option to Encrypt system and also options to Encrypt individual partitions, which leaves me puzzled as to what Calamares does?
The system on which I am doing a fresh install is a manually GPT partitioned SSD as follows:
390GiB btrfs root
What would be the difference between choosing to:
- Encrypt system only
- Encrypt the swap and root partitions only
- Encrypt system and Encrypt swap and root
Would the last option mean swap and root get double encrypted?
Encrypt system implies swap and root would be encrypted anyway and not need to be encrypted individually but that the bios-grub partition would also get encrypted?
Sorry if I am confused, but which may be a sensible option?
