User research
=============
+Research questions
+------------------
+
+### Success
+
+- How many people use VeraCrypt in Tails after our work in
+ comparison with before?
+- How many people who were using VeraCrypt outside of Tails but
+ couldn't use it in Tails use it after our work?
+
+### Scope
+
+- Which fraction of VeraCrypt volume are encrypted file containers?
+ encrypted partitions?
+- Are people encrypting their full operating system with VeraCrypt?
+- Which fraction of users are using hidden volumes?
+- Which fraction of users are using keyfiles? Why? How?
+
+### Behaviors
+
+- Do people share files between Tails and their regular operating
+ system? If so how?
+- Can we rely on file containers having a .tc or .hc extension?
+
+Where to ask our questions
+--------------------------
+
+- Inside Tails:
+ - /home
+ - /doc/encryption_and_privacy/truecrypt
+ - Tails channel on Reddit
+
+- Outside Tails:
+ - XXX
+
+Notes on using VeraCrypt
+------------------------
+
+- I couldn't manage to encrypt a whole device.
+- I couldn't manage to create a new encrypted partition (only reformat
+ an existing one).
+- I couldn't manage to encrypt the *second* partition on a disk (only
+ the first one).
+- VeraCrypt has a "Mount" and "Auto-Mount Devices".
+- VeraCrypt doesn't enforce or guide in creating the '.hc' extension.
