How to Get File Path

I'm looking for a quick function that will give me just the path for a file.
For example if I have the string "C:\Temp\MyFile .txt", I want to just return
just the string "C:\Temp\". How is this done using VB.NET?

Console.WriteLi ne(Path.GetDire ctoryName("C:\t emp\myfile.txt" )

So, is there any way of translating a UNC path to the physical path on the remote computer? ie: Translating '...

I deleted the Virtual Directory, rebooted, and...

I have an input type="file" field that I am using to accept a file upload. This works, but I'm having problems with the filename property.
