Hello Folks,

I have few questions regarding Veracrypt:

1 - In case of forgetting the decryption key, is there any way to get access to the data,
2 - How multi-users can use Vercrypt in the same time in order to access to the encrypted hard drive.
3 - Is there a feature such two factor authentication in Vercrypt ,

1-Of course not. That would defeat the whole purpose. As someone on another thread said,
if you aren't serious about encryption, this isn't for you.
2-Probably just a matter of mounting it with the right permissions, but as I haven't tried, and as you
are probably a Windows user in which case the details would be different, I won't comment further.
3-Yes. With token files.

Did you try reading any of the documentation AT ALL? 1 and 3 are such extremely basic questions
that it is hard to imagine how you could miss knowing the answers if you had. And 2 probably isn't
that hard to find. Did you TRY mounting a volume and seeing if more than one user could access it
simultaneously? A simple experiment might not prove impossibility, but it has the potential to prove
possibility with minimal effort.

Also note that the subfora have titles. This isn't the place for this.
