Secret that windows users dont know?

I am a windows pc user and today I will share a secret with you that you may haven't known about.
If you have ever formatted your pc hard disk then you would know that NTFS partitioned hard disk has many features over FAT partition.
Mostly windows users format their hard disk in NTFS partition but they don't know that NTFS provides you an advantage to create hidden space behind any file.
This method is mostly used by hackers or to protect private information.
This function is only available in NTFS partition and it is mostly used in windows.
It is called as ALTERNATE DATA STREAM.
You may have heard about this but do you know you can hide original file type using this method.
Hackers mostly use this to install exploit in a system.
It also has an advantage that file hidden using ALTERNATE DATA STREAM don't increases original file of file behind you have hidden your private data.
I love this and I mostly use this to hide my passwords because no one can easily detect if you will hide your private data behind other file.
Enjoy this and protect your private data from unauthorized access.
