#include <File.au3>
_PathSplit ( $sFilePath, ByRef $sDrive, ByRef $sDir, ByRef $sFileName, ByRef $sExtension )

Parameters

$sFilePath The path to be split (can contain a UNC server or drive letter)
$sDrive String to hold the drive
$sDir String to hold the directory

$aArray[$PATH_DIRECTORY] = directory
$aArray[$PATH_FILENAME] = filename
