Returns a string containing the name of the parent folder of the last component in a specified path.
The GetParentFolderName method syntax has these parts:
|object||Required. Always the name of a FileSystemObject.|
|path||Required. The path specification for the component whose parent folder name is to be returned.|
The GetParentFolderName method returns a zero-length string ("") if there is no parent folder for the component specified in the path argument.
The GetParentFolderName method works only on the provided path string. It does not attempt to resolve the path, nor does it check for the existence of the specified path.
