Description

When I have a script at D:\Downloads\Ruby 2.5.3\rbL\comp\codeShort.rb with few other files in the same folder, the following searches only the folder where the .rb script is located:

Find.find('D:')

When I have a script at D:\Downloads\Ruby 2.5.3\rbL\codeShort.rb with many other files in the same folder, the same code as above searches the entire disk D.

To search the entire disk D in the first case, I did this:

Find.find('D:/')

But I don't understand why the two cases behave differently with the same instruction just because they script are in different directories.
