  1. Hi, David. You make things simple and easy to understand. Thank you! Please,

    1) What if I have a 1TB USB drive on which I want to install VeraCrypt but don’t want to encrypt the entire drive?

    2)What if I want to use plausible deniability and give someone a decoy password that does not open my hidden volume, do I first select ‘Encrypt a non-system partition/drive, and then select ‘Hidden VeraCrypt volume?

    Thanks so very much for your help, my friend!

    1. Thank you for your kind of words and we are glad to help you! Here are the answers of your two questions-
      1. If you don’t want to encrypt entire USB drive then you can create a VeraCrypt drive within the volume and you can store the sensitive data there. By so, the rest volume of the USB will be non encrypted.
      2. Yes, by doing so, you will be able to create to different volume, a decoy one, and a hidden one. You can use the hidden volume to restore the sensitive data.
      Hope you find the answer helpful, for any further queries, reach us through the comment box, thank you. Have a great day!
