I am using Ubuntu 16.04 and have a dedicated drive mounted to /home/USERNAME.

When I tried ecrypt-migrate-home -u USERNAME I got an error the the resource was busy.

I had logged out, stopped all user services, made sure nothing was being accessed with lsof -n | grep \/home\/.

I have 2.5x the room on my system drive but /home/USERNAME is an entire volume.

Should I just rsync my user directory to the root drive, encrypt the whole home drive and then remount? As this is not automated I am unsure how to make the correct changes so I can login properly.
