How can I convert my VeraCrypt back to TrueCrypt ones?

I changed to VeraCrypt when support for TrueCrypt was withdrawn and no further updates were available. But it is so slow that I would like to convert my volumes back to TrueCrypt ones! Does anyone know the easiest way to do that?

For non-system volumes and file containers, if you made external backups of the volume headers in TrueCrypt, you can restore the headers using TrueCrypt. If you do not have external backups of the TrueCrypt headers to restore, then you will have to mount the VeraCrypt volumes and copy the files to a new mounted volume encrypted by TrueCrypt.

For system encryption, you will have to decrypt via VeraCrypt and encrypt the system using TrueCrypt.

EDIT: There are planned enhancements to the bootloader and dynamic hashing iterations based on password length to reduce the mount times. These are not minor code changes and will take a great deal of time to implement.
