KG-Ghost Key Generator has extended functionality related to Hidden Containers:
- It is possible to create several Hidden Parts inside a single outer container file.
- Hidden Part is created inside outer container file space not occupied by
data the user stores inside outer container. As a result, creating hidden part does not
cause corrupting data inside outer container.
The functionality listed above requires getting information about data inside outer
container before the user starts creating hidden part. If there are several hidden parts
inside outer container, the user should also enter passwords for all the hidden parts
before creating a new hidden part. So the procedure of creating hidden part looks like
- Open Change Container Properties dialog for the container
by running Properties command from pop-up menu for selected
container or from menu item.
- Open Hidden part properties property sheet.

outer container, read map of free clusters (i.e. it will define space inside outer container
that is not occupied by data) and dismount the outer container again.

If you are creating first hidden part inside the container, choose the size of hidden part
using the slide bar at the bottom part of the sheet. Note that maximum allowed size is equal to the size of free space in
the original container.
