My volumes are being mounted without entering a password!


I'm not sure what exactly is going on but my Veracrypt volumes have now mounted two separate times after booting my machine without me entering any password. I am using this script to mount the volumes:
VeraCrypt.exe /cache /auto favorites /wipecache /quit

I am not using a system encryption and both times it was a cold boot, not a reboot or wake up from standby.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on here? Is this normal behaviour?

So, for other people that have that problem: This is due to the "Hybrid boot and shutdown" function of Windows which is basically another version of "hibernate". Disable that and you're good.

This should be fixed with VeraCrypt to prevent when usual users forgot to disable this function in Windows.
