Hide files and folders inside image

You may have been under the suspicion that someone else may view some files and folders on your system which you do not want to be seen. Using some software installed to make some files locked behind can encrypt your files in a way that the software corruption may lead to the deletion of such files from the system. This simple way makes you hide any file behind an image in your system.
Lock files inside an image


1. Create a folder i.e. E:\Hide and put in all of the files that you want to hide into that folder and now zip the files to .ZIP extension and name it whatever you want, i,e. “Hidden.zip”.



2. Now, place the image in which you want to hide the files.



3. Now, click on Start, type in cmd and press Enter. Get to the root directory. Then type CD Hide and press enter.



4. Now type the following line and press Enter.
copy /b z_logo.png + Hidden.zip z_logo.png



Make sure to check the file extension on the compressed file, whether it is .ZIP or .RAR as you have to type the entire file name with extension in the command.
 
5. To access your hidden file, simply change the extension to .RAR and open the file using WinRAR. Secondly, you can just right-click on the image and choose Open With and then scroll down to WinRAR.



Henceforth, you can hide any file or folder by compressing it to a zip or rar file and then copying it to the image file in your pc and keep your files inaccessible from other persons using your system.
