Hello All


Could someone please explain how and why, when a file is saved its raw binary data is not saved in a concurrent string and is broken up and split it up.


As I understand it, the picture is stored in a binary format and two exact images have the same binary data apart from the meta data. But, how does the assembley level to know where to look for the broken up data if it is not stored concurrently?


Many thanks in advance, hope the question makes sense.
