Not if the perp had a limited window of opportunity...

Let's say he knew he was about to be shown the door, for example.  He
fires up a GUI, clicks on the juciest directories until he gets 650Mb,
writes the CD, then pockets it.  Later, he zips it at his leisure.  That
way, there's no incriminating watermarks or the like.

It's what *I* would do, after all.
