Description

Extracts the drive and directory parts from FileName.

The resulting string is a directory name suitable for passing to the CreateDir, GetCurrentDir, RemoveDir, and SetCurrentDir functions. This string is empty if FileName contains no drive and directory parts.

Note: This function works for multi-byte character systems (MBCS).
