    Post File not getting workspace

    Hi! (Sorry for the bad title. English is not my native language and I didn't know how to put it.) I have a problem with getting an image with ImageIO.read(File file). I have the following code to get the image.

    try {
    	File file = new File("/res/entities/player/human.png");
    	System.out.println(file.getAbsolutePath());
    	image = ImageIO.read(file);
    } catch (IOException e) {
    	e.printStackTrace();
    }

    The problem is, the file does not get the workspace path before the given path.

    Instead of the path being:

    C:/...path to workspace.../res/entities/player/human.png

    It is:

    C:/res/entities/player/human.png

    This has never happened before and I dont know what to do.

    There error is also only in this program. It works in all my other projects!

    Please help me!

    Try

    File file = new File("res/entities/player/human.png");

    ie without the leading /. At the moment the file name will be resolved to something at the top of the current drive (C).
