this is my first post and would like clarification on VeraCrypt Containers

I created a container on my pc "mycontainer" I would like to copy this to my pen drive and move to a second PC.

Is this possible?

If so, can I open it with an existing install of VeraCrypt on the second PC?

Yes that is possible.. If you are just moving the container it is fine, but is it because you want to "copy it", then you should create a new container insted. It is not good to have two containers with the same "hash keys". It is best to create a new container with the same password, then the containers won't have the same hashes..

Regarding the existing install of VC, yes if it is the same version or greater. (Latest is right now 1.0f)
