Explain how to access HD when it's a LVM volume
doc/encryption_and_privacy/your_data_wont_be_saved_unless_explicitly_asked.mdwn -> the note about LVM being "more complicated" could be explained.
Pertinent discussion from #5636:
Regarding LVM, what happens by default?
-> Nothing useful when a PV appears (e.g. after unlocking a dm-crypt volume that hosts a PV).
what happens if you run vgchange -ay?
-> Then the VG and all LVs in there appear. Maybe they can even be mounted from GNOME Disks (not sure).

Maybe this bug can be closed? I can read an explanation to open LVMs at
I don't think we need to add the whole process as the Disk Utility GUI is quite simple, where you need to:
- Unlock the device
- Start the Volume
- Mount it
Is the bug open because this information is supposed to go there? I think it may be too much for that page...

Yeah, what's in https://tails.boum.org/doc/encryption_and_privacy/your_data_wont_be_saved_unless_explicitly_asked/ is fine with me. Maybe we forgot with BitingBird to close this ticket as well when working on a related one... BitingBird can you check as you wrote that note (if I remember correctly)?

I think that the page is fine as it is. If you want to be sure about that, then I suggest you try to open the encrypted Debian system on your internal hard disk from Tails and see how it goes. Then feel free to reopen this ticket if you think that's not easy enough and makes sense as part of our doc.
