    Creating a virtual disk to "hide" files

    Thanks, I'll look into putting this information in the LQ Tutorials section.

    I like your idea of an encrypted tar file, or something like that. Your correct that only root can mount the virtual disk as a loopback. I'll see what I can come up with.

    Creating a virtual disk to "hide" files

    Additionally, an alternative could be encrypting the filesystem OR a separate tutorial on using an encrypted tar file. An encrypted tar file would take about as much room but would allow unprivileged users to manage their hidden files. Makes me wonder if there are other encryption options that are user based. It would be nice to hide a user's Document Downloads etc. file from even the prying eyes of root.

    This concept will prove to be more helpful, if you put it in the LQ tutorials section here:
