I want to get folder location by providing its name.

I created one folder on "E:\" drive and when I used following code in netbeans it giving me the current loaction of java file.
File directory = new File("SVN");
        boolean isDirectory = directory.isDirectory();
        if (isDirectory) {
            // It returns true if directory is a directory.
            System.out.println("the name you have entered is a directory  : "  +    directory);  
            //It returns the absolutepath of a directory.
            System.out.println("the path is "  + directory.getAbsolutePath());
        else {
            // It returns false if directory is a file.
            System.out.println("the name you have entered is a file  : " +   directory);
            //It returns the absolute path of a file.
            System.out.println("the path is "  +  directory.getAbsolutePath());
And i got following output
the name you have entered is a file  : SVN
the path is C:\Users\AjayS\Documents\NetBeansProjects\TestCodes\SVN
But my folder is located on "E:\" drive.
