How to Hide Stuff in a Floppy Disk





Introduction: How to Hide Stuff in a Floppy Disk

Nobody uses floppy disks anymore so why not turn that unused floppy into a convenient way to hide your things from prying eyes...

So today I present:

Step 1: Dissasemble the Floppy

This is relatively easy, just make sure that you don't break the disk. I used a pocket knife and cut the places where the corners are held together. Put your disk aside for now.

Step 2: Find the Things You Want to Hide

Now you find something you want to hide, in this case I wanted to hide an SD card with some sensitive information (see picture). You can use anything that is thin enough.

Step 3: Make a Hiding Place

Now we need to cut a space for the object to sit in, I traced and cut an SD card sized hole in the disk

Step 4: Put It Back Together

Now you need to put the thing back together. You don't need the soft things but you need the disk. I simply taped the bottom and used the clip to hold it together.

Step 5: Final Thoughts.

You are done. I sugest adding a label to your disk to fool those trying to steal your data.

    I don't know if you were being sarcastic but.... My brother has a 512 MB SD-card.....

    I was being sarcastic. You can get 16GB SDHC cards! That's like 2 full DVDs in the size of your thumb.

    And now, just a year after this comment, you can get 32GB *Micro* SDHC cards.  That's more than 4 full DVDs in the size of your thumb NAIL!  It's amazing how fast technology is advancing these days!

    And only little more than a year that comment also, you can now get 128 GB SD cards. Is this evolution exponential or what?

    It's been a while so I thought I'd chime in that you can now get SD cards of 512 GB and 128 GB mSD.

    I have 2 devices that settle on the lower end. An SD car at 256 MB, and an old 8 MB flash drive.

    ok cool

    Just figured I'd throw that out there. Also have a 2 GB flash drive that has 120 MB left of space...
