    Default Saving to text file

    Hello everyone! I have been messing around with this code I have been trying to get to work correctly all night. Basically I was just wanted it to read all the files in one folder, and save the titles to a text file. I have gotten everything else working, but when I attempt to save it to a text file it only saves the very last file name. Can someone please help me out before I drive myself crazy. Here is my code :
    Java Code:
    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;
    
    public class DirectoryReader {
    
    	private static int arraySize;
    
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		File folder = new File("E:/Videos/Movies");
    		File[] listOfFiles = folder.listFiles();
    		String[] orderedTitles = new String[listOfFiles.length];
    		
    		for (int i = 0; i < listOfFiles.length; i++) {
    			if (listOfFiles[i].isFile()) {
    				String fileName = (listOfFiles[i].getName());
    				int cd1Index = fileName.indexOf("CD1");
    				int cd2Index = fileName.indexOf("CD2");
    				int cd3Index = fileName.indexOf("CD3");
    				int cd4Index = fileName.indexOf("CD4");
    				int endIndex = fileName.indexOf(".");
    				String newName;
    				if (cd1Index > 0) {
    					newName = fileName.substring(0,cd1Index-2);
    				} else if (cd2Index > 0) {
    					newName = fileName.substring(0,cd2Index-2);
    				} else if (cd3Index > 0) {
    					newName = fileName.substring(0,cd3Index-2);
    				} else if (cd4Index > 0) {
    					newName = fileName.substring(0,cd4Index-2);
    				} else {
    					newName = fileName.substring(0,endIndex);
    				}
    				orderedTitles[i] = newName;
    			} else {
    				System.out.println("There is an incorrect file present in folder.");
    			}
    			
    			arraySize = i;
    		}
    		
    		SortedSet set = new TreeSet();
    		for (int k = 0; k < orderedTitles.length; k++) {
    			set.add(orderedTitles[k]);
    		}
    
    		Iterator it = set.iterator();
    		while (it.hasNext()) {
    			// Get element
    			Object element = it.next();
    			saveFile(element);
    			System.out.println(element);
    		}
    		
    	}
    	
    	public static void saveFile(Object title) {
    			FileOutputStream fout;
    			try {
    			
    				// Open an output stream
    				fout = new FileOutputStream ("myMovies.txt");
    				
    				// Print a line of text
    		   	new PrintStream(fout).println (title);
    				
    				// Close our output stream
    				fout.close();
    			}
    			// Catches any error conditions
    			catch (IOException e) {
    				System.err.println ("Unable to write to file");
    				System.exit(-1);
    			}
    	
    	}
    	
    }
    Thank you very much!

    Default

    every time you open the file, you overwrite it. open it once, write into it, and close it once.

    You put append true.

    fout = new FileOutputStream ("myMovies.txt",true);

    That would make a lot of sense, I did not even think of that. Thanks iluxa. I tried just adding true like you said RamyaSivakanth, and it seems to be working fine now. Thanks a lot, you both were a lot of help.
