Dear Idrix

Many thanks for the continuation of the Truecrypt program and implementation of enhanced security features in Veracrpt.

Technicall request for info :- if I used veracrypt 1d to create an encrypted volume should I fully re-encrypt if I upgrade to 1e since there are many bugfixes?

Thx

Hi,

Thanks for your feedback.

You don't need to re-encrypt your volumes/partition when a new version of VeraCrypt is released : the bug fixes and modifications are related to the client software and they don't affect the encrypted storage format which is stable across versions and don't need any change.

Cheers,
