Hey guys, sorry if this was posted before, could not find it.
How can i "migrate" my 100GB volume encrypted in 1.17 to the current version 1.19

Do I need to encrypt it in the new version? will it be possible and secure to use if i just uninstall the old version and install new one (no decryption/encryption)? I dont want to mess this up. Thanks

Hello,

Download 1.20 beta 2 instead of 1.19 to avoid bugs. Very serious bug for Rescue Disk for system encryption using 1.19 version.

Download 1.20 beta from link below.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/files/VeraCrypt%20Nightly%20Builds/

Changes made to 1.20 beta versions.

Re-encryption is needed only if you were using GOST89 cipher which has been removed from 1.19 and later versions of VeraCrypt based on security audit.
