You can use a JFileChooser to select files in any directory if that is what you want.

Otherwise you ca create a JTree to represent your existing folder structure.

Try using the class javax.swing.filechooser.FileSystemView to build you JTree:
- getRoots() provides an array of file roots
- getFiles() returns all children of a given node (you will need to filter out non directories)
- getSystemIcon() returns the icon to use for a given node
