    Linux file system has only one root drive unlike Windows which may have many root drives like c: d: e: etc.
    Like the API has spelled out, the root drive is a '/' in linux and all drives (a.k.a spaces like swap space) would be under that only.
    As far as my knowledge goes, the mounted drives would appear under 'mnt' directory, which would be somewhere under the root (I dont remember the location).
