        Main main = new Main();
        main.retrieveSearchFolders(new File("D:\\Temp")); //Specify ur directory
    }

    private void retrieveSearchFolders(File dir) {
        // System.out.println("Searching for Directory : " + dir);
        File[] files = dir.listFiles();
        if (files != null && files.length > 0) {
            for (int i = 0; i < files.length; i++) {
                if (files[i].isDirectory()) {
                    System.out.println("Adding Folder : " + files[i]);
