Complicated file recovery
Well I kinda created a mess...
I learned online about this trick that lets you hide files in jpg pictures...
you just go to command promt and use the command "copy /b picture.jpg + file.rar picture.jpg"
well that worked fine and i could hide a compressed doc file in a picture...
I could open the picture with winrar and see my doc file.
but then I went and opened the pic and accidently modified it ( just a dot with a pencil somewhere ) and now rar wont read it...
Is there any way to recover it ?? it was kind of an important document.
I dont know if this helps, but before i modified the pic i cut and paste it out of the folder it was in
I mean it was in H:\folder\pic
and i moved it to H:\pic
then i moved it back to H:\folder\pic again
I think that should leave a copy of the unmodified pic in that hard disk right? can i recover this with some software? any help is welcome
