Converting TrueCrypt to VeraCrypt Does Not Warn About Hidden Volumes


Hello Mounir,

While performing some testing converting TrueCrypt file container to VeraCrypt, I discovered that no warning is provided to the user that you if you convert a TrueCrypt volume that contains a hidden volume will result in the loss of the hidden volume.

Also the documentation does not include a warning.

Kind Regards.

VeraCrypt does not convert the hidden volume which is still accessible using TrueCrypt to mount as hidden volume until, at some point, the "Normal" mounted volume will overwrite the hidden volume.
