Assembly: System.Management.Automation (in System.Management.Automation.dll)
The path to be parsed.
A fully-qualified path to the root of a drive. For more information, see the Remarks section.
Return ValueParent part of the supplied path.
This method must be overridden to retrieve the child node of paths based on the syntax of the paths that the navigation provider is using. It is used with GetChildName to tokenize the path without having to know what the path separator is, or the ordering of the tokens in the path.
If the root parameter of this method passes a fully-qualified path to the root of a drive, the method must return a path to a container in the same tree as the root. However, this parameter can be null or empty if a mounted drive is not in use for the retrieval operation.
For more information about providers, see Windows PowerShell Providers.
