Its very simple just follow all my instructions and refer screenshots if needed. So lets start our work.


1. Open command prompt (cmd.exe) or just press window + r and type cmd2. Change the default directory to which where your folder is located.

Here I am going to make a folder named techoloid located in my D drive, Inaccessible.

You can use CD or CD.. commands to change the default directory.

For example: For appending any folder to it then You should use
Then current working directory will be D:NEWFOLDER>IF you want to remove any folder from current working directory then simply give CD..

That is here The NEWFOLDER will removed from current working directory.Ok leave all that, Its just for those who don’t Know these basics3. Now type the following command carefully (refer screenshot given below)
