I have a heavy laden C: Drive and I want to get a list of files present in the Documents directory and Downloads directory. How can I write a program for this ?

import os

def list_files_and_directories(path):
for name in os.listdir(path):
if os.path.isfile(os.path.join(path, name)):
print(f'{name} is a file.’)
print(f'{name} is a directory.’)

# Call the function with the directory path


replace "/path/to/your/directory" with the actual path of the directory you want to inspect.
