So a while back I somehow managed to hide some files within a jpg file using a guide I had found somewhere on the internet. My computer has since been in storage for some time as I moved to a new location and now, what do you know, I can't for the life of me remember how I would open this jpg as a folder to view the contents! Of course I've tried all different search terms I could think of but nada. Anyways the extension on said file is .jpg.app I don't know if that helps much but the only other thing I remember is that however I got it to open it would prompt me with a password, after which I could open this file as a folder at any time up until I logged out of that user account. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated, I'm at my wit's end here.

All I could find was how to hide the files within a JPG. Perhaps if you review how you did it, you can figure out how to unhide it. LINK

Aye that might work, except I can't find or remember the guide for doing it. The link might be quite valid and all, but it's on windows.....
