Use Default Hash Parameter for Subsequent Mounting Multiple Favorites


Hello Mounir,

To speed-up mounting multiple favorites, please change the behavior of VeraCrypt to mount subsequent favorite volumes using the user’s default hash parameter when it is not set to Autodetection. If the subsequent favorite volume’s mount fails using the default hash parameter, proceed with trying the remaining hash algorithms before prompting the user with the failed login error and then the login window/box.

My logic for this request is that when a user sets their default hash parameter, they will very likely use the same hash algorithm for all their volumes. Also, this will reduce the mount times instead of cycling through all four current hash algorithms and reduce the mount times when VeraCrypt includes additional hash algorithms in the future.

Kind Regards.
