In the below mentioned code I am writing dummy contents in a file called "testfile.txt". But I want to write dummy contents in any of the files of the external storage. I don't want the file name to be hard coded. How do I do?
String root = android.os.Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().getPath();
File myFile = new File(root,"testfile.txt");
FileChannel rwChannel = new RandomAccessFile(myFile, "rw").getChannel();  
int numBytes = (int)rwChannel.size();  
ByteBuffer buffer =, 0, numBytes); 
byte[] randomBytes = new byte[numBytes];  
new Random().nextBytes(randomBytes);

You can use File.createTempFile(String prefix, String suffix, File directory) API to generate a random file in the specified directory.
