Sample:

#include "_FileIsPathValid.au3"

$path = "d:\GooodBoy.au3"
MsgBox(0, $path, _FileIsPathValid($path, 1))

$path = "d:\Goo>odB\oo\oy.au3"
MsgBox(0, $path, _FileIsPathValid($path, 1))

$path = "jook:\Gooo*dBo\\?y.au3"
MsgBox(0, $path, _FileIsPathValid($path, 1))

$path = "sadasds?y.au3"
MsgBox(0, $path, _FileIsPathValid($path, 1))

Nice, but can be done using only RegExp:

$sPath = "D:\GooodBoy.au3"
$iPathIsValid = _FilePathIsValid($sPath)
ConsoleWrite($iPathIsValid & @LF)

$sPath = "D:\Not*GooodBoy.au3"
$iPathIsValid = _FilePathIsValid($sPath)
ConsoleWrite($iPathIsValid & @LF)

Func _FilePathIsValid($sPath)
    Local $sInvalid_Chars = '*?|:<>"/'
    Local $sPattern = '(?i)^[a-z]:([^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E]+)?(\\[^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E\\]+)?(\.[^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E\\\.]+|\\)?$'
    Local $iPathIsValid = StringRegExp($sPath, $sPattern)
    
    Return $iPathIsValid
EndFunc

P.S

There is also my _FileGetValidName() UDF, wich will return the valid name.

And here is the same but returns the valid path as well (optional):

$sPath = "D:\GooodBoy.au3"
$iPathIsValid = _FilePathIsValid($sPath)
ConsoleWrite($iPathIsValid & @LF)

$sPath = "D:\Not*GooodBoy.au3"
$sPathValid = _FilePathIsValid($sPath, 1, '_')
ConsoleWrite("PathIsValid ==> " & @extended & @LF & "Valid Name  ==> " & $sPathValid & @LF)

Func _FilePathIsValid($sPath, $iRetValid = 0, $sReplaceChar = '')
    Local $sInvalid_Chars = '*?|:<>"/'
    Local $sPattern = '(?i)^([a-z]:\\?)([^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E]+)?(\\[^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E\\]+)?(\.[^\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E\\\.]+|\\)?$'
    Local $iPathIsValid = StringRegExp($sPath, $sPattern)
    
    If $iRetValid = 1 And Not $iPathIsValid Then
        Local $iLastCharIsSlash = (StringRight($sPath, 1) = '\')
        Local $aPathSplit = StringSplit(StringRegExpReplace($sPath, '\\+$', ''), '\')
        Local $sValidName
        
        $sPath = ''
        
        For $i = 2 To $aPathSplit[0] - 1
            $sValidName = StringRegExpReplace($aPathSplit[$i], '[\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E]', $sReplaceChar)
            
            If $sValidName <> '' Then
                $sPath &= $sValidName & '\'
            EndIf
        Next
        
        $sPath &= StringRegExpReplace($aPathSplit[$aPathSplit[0]], '[\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E]', $sReplaceChar)
        $sPath = StringLeft(StringRegExpReplace($aPathSplit[1], '[\Q' & $sInvalid_Chars & '\E]', $sReplaceChar), 1) & ':\' & $sPath
        
        If $iLastCharIsSlash Then
            $sPath &= '\'
        EndIf
        
        Return SetExtended(0, $sPath)
    EndIf
    
    Return $iPathIsValid
EndFunc

Thank you for the regexp trick.

I am finally starting to get to understand regexp. :idea: But I'm not still fluent in it. I needed that functionality in my latest project so I scraped up it in the way I can think. :)
