$a="D:\My Documents\WoWScreenshots"

At first I was like "Hey, cool a new way"... but then I ran it ... It no worky :)

@OP, _PathSplit can help you here, StringLeft + StringInStr can help you here as well as StringRegExpReplace

;
Func _Fldr_GetParent($sFldr)
   If StringRight($sFldr, 1) = "\" Then $sFldr = StringTrimRight($sFldr, 1)
   Return StringLeft($sFldr, StringInStr($sFldr, "\", 0, -1) -1)
EndFunc   ;<===> _Fldr_GetParent()
;

This will return the parent folder without the trailing backslash

This will return the parent folder without the trailing backslash

Quick and dirty: StringRegExpReplace($sString, "\\+[\w-~\.]*\z", "")
