Hi,

 

I have been looking into HPA's and DCO's and how they can be used to hide data for a project.

I have seen a command based tool called ATATool which can create a HPA and DCO on a connected drive.

My question is how do I interact with the HPA/DCO? Such as storing data within it?

Thanks

Maybe PM or speak to Jim who developed ATATOOL as Jim is here on Forensic Focus.

I would have thought you write to the end of the drive. Set the HPA/DCO limit and job done?
