Linux Mint choked at decryot password, thus unable to use Timeshift

I keep Timeshift up to date to facilitate reload if the machine gets unhappy and/or fussy. But my puter got unhappy and fussy at the encryption login; I couldn't get near Timeshift, or anything else. Most all was backed up using external drives, lost a few files plus had to reload Mint, no big deal. I did encrypt it again because hey, Linux Mint, easy-peasy. But supposing the machine gets south-footed again, how can I get to Timeshift? And what the hell happened to lock me out -- never happened before or since.
