    The command does a binary combine of Image.jpg and Test.rar, putting the result in abc.jpg. It's a little unclear to me what you're trying to do. Can you explain  in a little more detail?

    I used to use the command to hide the ".Rar" files behind Image.jpg so when i delete the rar file also i can unzip the .jpg file.No one will know that .jpg file has many files hidden in 1 name...

    Hi Sharath,

    This will simply combine two (Image.jpg , Test.rar) files into one (abc.jpg)
    If you ABC.JPG file into image viewer (like ACDSee, FastStorne Image Viewer) it will show you the picture ((Image.jpg) and if your open it with Winrar.exe then it will show you the compressed contents that were in Test.rar file.

    Hope this helps!

    it's a common way of hiding files in other benign files...

    the original file grows according to the size of the file you have just added, it's a simple concatenate function (ie, add this file to that file)..if you try to run/view the original file it still works fine as the EOF in the main file data is still there.... the extra file is just added to the end.
