You can guess what benefits you get with VeraCrypt hidden volume. One other thing to note if you didn't know already which was mentioned by in another topic, 'you can really cut down the time if you specify which hash algorithm you used in the mount option' instead of leaving it on 'Autodetection' at the bottom of the decryption box. The menu bar links to additional tools, options and settings that new users may want to explore prior to creating a new container or encrypting a hard drive partition.

After a little bit of research, I found out that one critical parameter can be changed to achieve faster timings - I tried to understand the usage of such thing, but I couldn't.
