Super hiding files using command prompt

Super hidden files are not visible to users even if the visibility of hidden files are enabled. You can make a hidden system file using cmd and usually common people does not go for changing settings to enable visibility for system files. This method simply hides your files.

You have to add \photos at the end of above location to point to original folder as below
