+ <span class="menuchoice">

+ </span>
+ to open the <span class="application">GNOME Disk Utility</span>.
+
+1. In the left pane, click on the device corresponding to your Tails device.
+
+1. In the right pane, click on the partition labeled as
+ <span class="guilabel">Encrypted</span>. The
+ <span class="guilabel">Partition Label</span> must be
+ <span class="label">TailsData</span>.
