Hi guys.


When I try to log in to my username I get the message "You are unable to log in to the FileVault user account "user" at this time. Logging in to the account failed because an error occurred." I created another admin account using root, but I am unable to view the home folder of my locked account under /users. Even in my backups the file and its sparsebundle do not appear


Any way to fix this?
