Made a huge mistake wiping out a project folder via a shell command before realizing I didn’t store the .vault_pass backup in my Dropbox. I did save the entry it in 1Password, but that doesn’t seem to be working as I am getting the following:
ERROR! Decryption failed (no vault secrets were found that could decrypt) for /Users/art/Sites/oddfellows.tv/trellis/group_vars/all/vault.yml
I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the best way to proceed here, there are three paths I’ve tried and considering:
(1) Try to recover the .vault_pass file with a data recovery method like Disk Drill (but unfortunately after a full scan I couldn’t find the missing file). Is there another utility that could be used? Keep in mind I deleted the folder using the shell command
rm -rf project_folder and I’m on a mac. I know I must have a partial match in the .vault_pass but I must have an extra/missing character.
(2) I have full access to everything, so is there a way I could use it to piece together the missing pieces that were encrypted and recreate the vault.yml files?
(3) What are my other options? Can I brute force? Do I have to start a new droplet?
Any help at all would be great, I am completely lost here and not sure how to approach this.
Thank you in advance!
