Hi, I'm unable to get the details of the Drives of the system.The listRoots() method of the File class list the current drives,but I want to get the properties such as whether it is Flopppy Drive,CD Drive or a Local HardDrive etc., the label of the drive, the size of the drive etc.I also want to get the properties like date created of an ordinary file
