{
   public static void main(String args[])
   {
      SystemDriveTypes systemDriveTypes = new SystemDriveTypes();
      systemDriveTypes.proceed();
   }
   
   private void proceed()
   {
      File rootList[] = File.listRoots();
      FileSystemView fsv;
      String driveType;
      if (rootList != null && rootList.length  0) 
      {
         System.out.println("Available drive types in the System: ");
         for (File driveList : rootList) 
         {
            fsv = FileSystemView.getFileSystemView();
            driveType = fsv.getSystemTypeDescription(driveList);
            System.out.println(driveType);      
         }
