Currently the find command only allows to find files (partially supports folders on NTFS), which serves it's general purpose, but it could be slightly improved by having it also find folders (also on FAT). To prevent returning 2 results in the case that a file and folder of the same name exist, the command should distinguish the request by looking for the presence of a forward-slash at the end of the argument.

For example, let's assume that a file exists in (hd0,1) with name 'this', and there also exists a folder with the same name in (hd0,2).

Searching for the file:
find /this

Searching for the folder:
find /this/
