    Hello

    I just need some clarification on having a hidden Truecrypt hidden OS.

    If I follow the wizard, do I end up with 3 OSs total?
    Regular
    Decoy
    Hidden?


    The outer volume of the second partition is a decoy OS right? Struggling with this.


    My bad, I posted this in wrong tab. This was supposed to be under the encryption problems board.

    Just two OS'

    Password 1 boots the decoy, password 2 boots the hidden. The outer volume of the second partition, is accessed from the decoy, to show "secret" files.

    TrueCrypt does not allow resizing of encrypted partitions.
