Volume creation issue: I will mount the volume on other platforms?

Topics: Technical Issues
Jan 18 at 8:05 AM
I'm creating a new encrypted volume on USB3 disk having ext4. During the wizard there is a "Cross-Platform Support" screen having 2 options:
  • I will mount the volume on other platforms
  • I will mount the volume only on Linux
What do these mean in practice?
If I select volume to be ext4 can I really mount it e.g. from Windows PC?
Can I somehow change the selection afterwards when the volume is created? How?

Veracrypt (or Truecrypt) documentation does not mention these settings at all.
Please clarify the documentation also. Thank you for your support.
