Am I really the only one which encrypt its files using openSUSE approach?

sorry, i can't answer your initial question (never had or used
encrypted partitions)...but, for your question above: no.

Actually openSUSE encrypts home folders by using an image file.There are
*not* partitions involved.

and AFAICT some have also had to deal with insufficient space--here
are a few i found:

Again all the links, but the last one, deal with problems abput LVM and
encrypted partitions, which are not related to my issue.

and google can turn up others..what i didn't find was a clear how it
works or answers to all of your other questions...otoh i think Carlos
gave you _the_ correct answer: *Backup* and by that i'm sure he means
an OFF machine backup..

I've tried to found something related on the web, but didn't found anything
Naturally I would proceed with a backup first approach.I would be interested
in the details of the "expansion" process, as I said if it will proceed with
a copy+delete, it wouldn't have the space required to do such a thing.
Anyway looking at the openSUSE forums reply rate, maybe I would have better
posted there to get "users" support ?

Thank you again.
