GPT Reserved Partition

Topics: Technical Issues

Dear all,

I recently built a 6 TB RAID5 volume using 3x 3 TB drives and rather than encrypting the whole disk, I initialized the disk as GPT and created a partition covering all the usable space (~5.5 TB) and then encrypted the partition using Veracrypt. Needless to say, in this method, the 128 MB GPT reserved partition will remain unecnrypted. I was wondering, can this potentially undermine the security of the encrypted partition? I really have no idea what is actually stored in the reserved partition.
