    Short answer - no.

    Long answer - if you can make your OS swallow a blue pill, and somehow intercept the communication between the file system driver and the physical disk, then you can change whatever you want.

    But that brings up this -> The XY Problem
    Why?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
