How to hide files on cd-r?

vbimport

#1

Anybody knows how to hide files on a cd-r, so that it is impossible to access them even from the windows explorer. Is it e.g. possible to password-protect a cd-r?

Zipping them is not an option, because I want to access these files not having to wait for extraction or decription

Thanx

No this is not possible. You want to be able to acces them but others cannot? Can’t be done with individual files. However you could use a protected CD menu like Onyx (Warez CD) has… People then would first need a password to acces the menu and the files but it still wouldn’t be ‘waterproof’.

Ps. This is no question for the CloneCD forum so I’ll move it to General Chat

zipped with a password; or hide the files on your harddisk (hide file:)) and then copy them 2 ur harddisk. But is someone who might not take a look at the site can see ‘hidden files’ u have a problem :slight_smile:

Only way I can think of (because making them hidden files is not the solution, since anyone who has checked the box to display hidden files anyway can see those still) is have some kind of software that encrypts these files inside other files of this software.

It is like encapsulating the ‘secret’ files inside other files that can only be opened by accompanying software. The easiest way would be of course a password protected zipfile, but zippassword hack programs are all over the internet (may take some time, but almost anyone can do it).

Sorry not to be of more help.

but if you make a hard password, like “é709853Ö^(nfIO(&^$@” it’s virtually impossible to crack, because of the time it takes to “guess” such a password with zip password recovery.

To be honest i am not certain!

But though you could use something like inCD so that CD is only readable by that computer with it on. You could set the atrbutes of the files to hidden. I guess this is also PORN you are trying to cover up lol. To do this i would look around the net. got to www.cdmediaworld.com

650 MB of porn is nothing…
Not saying I have much of this…but consider one movie file and you have a lot of MB in one file already…

Will not mention names, but someone I know from IRC chat has many GB of XXX…you really don’t want to know :wink:

I have about 45 or 50 cd’s with nothing but porn. I usually grab a bunch out of the newsgroups. and then wait until there is about 650mb or so and then just burn it. Not to mention that I have about 1200 cd’s or more that just burnt. Huge collection.
And not all is porn. But if you really want to encrypt those files,
there are encrpytion apps like blowfish(get it from Nova software),
Pgp works to. You can still see the file names but cant access them unless u have the password.

there are links to encryption stuff


#17

and there I was thinking I was pretty bad with about 40Gb of the stuff… just shows ya!

Tax was right - loads of high quality movies take shed loads of space up. it’s a wonder sysadmins don’t notice so much space has gone innit.

rotfl.
