    Recover files that disappeared from LUKS encrypted volume on USB flash

    I have a 16gb USB 2.0 flash drive that I had partitioned into three partitiions:

    Partition one was about 1.5gb and contained an image of a live linux distro Partition two was 12gb LUKS ext4 encrypted and contained over 1gb of data Partition three was 2.5gb Ext4

    Today I opened up my encrypted partition and there were no files in there. When I checked the properties of the volume Disk Utility shows that it recognizes that some space was being used in the 12 gb LUKS volume.

    I really just need one file that was just a gedit text file without any extention that was on the 12gb LUKS volume. Is there any way to recover it? I know the filename. I already tried testdisk and scalpel with no luck--

    Here's a screenshot of how my system is recognizing the volume:

    Is there any chance I could recover my files or even just my one file that contained only text and had no extention? Any help greatly appreciated.

    Now that I look I might have actually used FAT (like is shown) though I can't 100% remember.
