Experience Level: Junior
Tags: File System

Answer

The file system path consists of the following parts:

  • Disk drive
  • One or more folders (also called as directories)
  • File name with file extension

As an example, see the following path:

c:\users\john.doe\Download\my-document.txt

  • c: is the disk drive
  • users is the directory
  • john.doe is the subdirectory that is stored in the parent directory users
  • Download is the subdirectory that is stored in the parent directory john.doe
  • my-document.txt is the full file that is stored in the directory Download
  • my-document is the file name
  • txt is the file extension (the . (dot) character is used as a delimiter between the file name and the file extension)

Note that the directories (folders) are delimited by the \ (backslash) character.
