I have used a free program called 7-Zip which works for very many tyoes of compressed files. It may be worth a try. You can get it at their website http://www.7-zip.org/

How to hide files in a jpg photo


1) Take two files -
one which you want to hide and another will be the jpg image(of any size and dimension)to hide that file

If you want to hide multiple files in one jpeg image, just zip them into one file

2) To make the process easy, Copy the above two files to the C:

3) Now open the command prompt (Go to start, Click "RUN" and type "cmd").

4) get to the root by typing cd\ or you can give the path name where the files are located

5) Now type the following command:

copy /b imagename.jpg + filetohide.ext new_image.jpg

6) Now a new file new_image.jpg will be created

7) Double click on the file and it will open the image which you used to hide the secret file

8) To access the hidden file simply change the extension from jpg to orignal extension of the hidden file,

Example: I took an image filename "myphoto.jpg"
I wanted to hide some important word documents so I zipped all the word files and created a zip file "word.zip"
Then copied both "myphoto.jpg" and "word.zip" to c:
Opened the command prompt
Typed the command: copy /b myphoto.jpg + word.zip new_image.jpg
Now I have a new file "new_image.jpg" in C:
When I double click on the new file it shows me the image of "myphoto.jpg"

If I change the extension of new_image.jpg to new_image.zip I can extract the contents of the .zip file

ENJOY !



ENJOY !

Can't open download files


Either:

1) the original files are corrupt
2) the original files are encrypted
3) the downloaded files are corrupt
4) the downloaded files require being unzipped and you have no "unzipper" installed such as 7 Zip.
5) the downloaded files, if already unzipped, have no program assigned to read their specific format

Just what operating system were the files originally created upon and what software was used to create them? IF you don't know, try the followsing:

Determine their file type (their extension, such as .pdf, .doc, .jpg, etc.. Google "how to open "fill in" files (the file type). Try installing a program that reads that extension. If you already have one, try opening the file with a double click and when it asks for which program to use to open it, then pick the one already installed that your research says will open it.

It seems unlikely all the files would be corrupt. It is more likely that you do not presently have a program that can open that file type. You may have to convert the file type into another type of file for which you have software that can open it. Generally, there is freeware available that can open most file types.
