Backslash begins an escape sequence in a string literal.
You have a few options:
0. Use a forward slash (which will work in Python for DOS paths):
1. Use the escape sequence for backslash: "E:\\myDir1\\myDir2"
2. Use a raw string: r"E:\myDir1\myDir2"

Yes, that is kind of surprising. Also, your nested loop...
for i in dir:
for j in files:
fille = root+i+j
... doesn't make any sense. "dir" is a list of sub-directories in
root, while "files" is a list of non-directory files in root. The
files in "files" are not in the subdirectories.
