How to hide a file behind an image

Sometimes one need to carry some personal data that one don't want to share it with anyone.
For carrying purpose , data should me in a pen drive or a CD , so one cannot use folder lock as the data will not remain locked when pen drive is used in a PC with no Folder lock installed.
But if one  hide the data behind an image ,it will be completely safe.

To do so , one should follow thw following steps:

Hiding the data behind an image.

  1. Convert the data(personal in this case) into a  rar  file using WinRaR

   2.  Open command prompt and go the address where the data(personal in this case) and the image(leaf.jpg in this case) behind which data has to hidden , are pressent.

   3.   Type the command "copy /b leaf.jpg + personal.rar hidden.jpg " .
         Here leaf.jpg is image behind which data is to be hidden
         personal.rar is the data to be hidden
