Capturing from a LUKS encrypted drive.
So, we just set up a fog server, and are capturing our first image off of it. The primary drive is encrypted with LUKS. It seems like the capture is reading that drive as being full, and as a result is having to check every block. This is causing the capture to take 12+ hours. Also, this creates a massive storage issue, as this image should only be 20GB tops but is populating as a full 250GB. Encrypting after the fact isn’t really an option. Am I screwed? Or does someone have a solution?

You have the same issue as a windows computer protected with bitlocker. Since FOS Linux can’t read the disk, it clones it as RAW (block by block).
