FileNameSplitter

By William Talada,

Use this function to break a full file name into four parts: a drive, a path, a filename, and an extension.  It handles any missing parts.  The function returns a table with the four parts as columns so you can use "cross apply" if needed.

select *

from dbo.FileNameSplitter('D:\MyDir\MySubDir\MyFile.MyExt')

It returns

"D:" as drive

"\MyDir\MySubDir\" as the path

"MyFile" as filename

"MyExt" as extension

OR try this:

SELECT physical_name, x.*
FROM sys.database_files df
cross apply (select * from dbo.FileNameSplitter(df.physical_name)) as x;
