How do I get the list of file system root?

The code below demonstrates how to obtain file system root available on your system. In Linux you will have a single root (/) while on Windows you could get C:\ or D:\ that represent the root drives.



public class FileSystemRoot {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        // List the available filesystem roots.
        File[] root = File.listRoots();

        // Iterate the entire filesystem roots.
        for (File file : root) {
            System.out.println("Root: " + file.getAbsolutePath());

The result of the code snippet:

Root: C:\
Root: D:\
