I read that it's only possible to in-place decrypt system drives. Is there a reason for this? Being able to avoid the hassle of copying everything off, formatting, then re-adding everything on all drive types would be great.

You can in-place decrypt using VeraCrypt for non-system disks/partitions.

The manual does not specify if in-place decryption will work on non-system disks/partitions with hidden volumes.

Oh, I must have misinterpreted what I read. Thanks.
