How to remove harddisk Encryption

Want to Remove Harddisk Encryption

Linux parrot 5.3.0-3parrot3-amd64 #1 SMP Parrot 5.3.9-3parrot3 (2019-11-23) x86_64 GNU/Linux

** I Used Debian GTK to install parrot OS, (Guided - use entire disk & set up encrypted LVM)**

NO (yes / no)

List your hardware specs to include make, model and firmware (when applicable):

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

lvm vgchange -a n ‘parrot-vg’

Logical volume parrot-vg/root contains a filesystem in use.
Can’t deactivate volume group “parrot-vg” with 3 open logical volume(s)

Last Month I was Configuring Mod Security for my apache server, i messed with some conf files and i am not able to remember it. I thinked to reinstall the whole parrot OS but KDE Edition, as i also want to try it.
Before that i Want to REMOVE encryption password which i had put while installing parrot earlier.

I fear if i directly put bootable pendrive of parrotOS (KDE Edition) and while formating harddisk,it should not show any kind of error due to encryption. so i want to remove the password of harddisk encryption.

IF you’re going to reinstall anyway, you can just go ahead with it without any issues.

it will get removed during format/complete reinstall as long as you do not enable it in the new install.
