Is there a method in System.IO.Path that merely returns the filepath?
If I have a string, for example,
Is there a BCL method that will provide me with the information I need?

Path.GetDirectoryName()… but make sure the path you’re feeding it has a file name; it just removes the last bit of the path, whether it’s a file name or a directory name (it actually has no idea which).
You may start by putting File to the test. Exists() and/or Directory are both valid options. To see if you need to call Path, first run Exists() on your path. GetDirectoryName

Path. GetDirectoryName() returns the directory name, thus you could use Path instead (without the trailing reverse solidus character). Path.DirectorySeparatorChar + GetDirectoryName(filePath).

string fileAndPath = @"c:\webserver\public\myCompany\configs\promo.xml"; string currentDirectory = Path.GetDirectoryName(fileAndPath); string fullPathOnly = Path.GetFullPath(currentDirectory);

As illustrated, GetParent() is a good choice. As needed, add error checking.
var fn = openFileDialogSapTable.FileName; var currentPath = Path.GetFullPath( fn ); currentPath = Directory.GetParent(currentPath).FullName;
