Text Split and re-assemble

by May 2, 2013

Script noob, need a little help with text manipulation.  I need to take apart a url, in the format below:


Then re-assemble it dropping the \servershare and the filename (but do want to save the filename.  The url's are all variable length.

I was playing around with this:

GC c:workinfile.txt |


$pieces = $_.Split("") 

$numpieces = $pieces.count

# $filename = $pieces[($pieces.length)]



# $filename





But the RemoveRange method is not working and also not getting the Filename pull to work, have tried a few variations, this was where I left off.


Thanks for the help
