Search File at all locations

I am trying a program that can search file in all drives

But issue is it is searching for file only in current directory

Is there any way that I can find the file at all locations?

Thanks in Advance

Please KeepItDown. That doesn't include all uppercase letters but also larger fonts. It's completely unnecessary.

With you can first use the static listRoots() methods to list all of the root files. You must then use a recursive method that for those. In pseudo code:
With java.nio.file.Path it's a bit different, because you can use FileVisitor:
