Category:Sparse archives

From ModdingWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This category lists all archive formats that can have data hidden somewhere inside them, without affecting use of the archive. Often this is because the archive stores both a file size and an offset for each file it contains, rather than just one or the other, which allows data to be hidden between files. But there are also other places data can be hidden, such as in headers or at the end of the archive, depending on the format.
