.NET/C# – opposite of Path.Combine: remove trailing DirectorySeparatorChar

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/01/01

For a project, I needed to strip the potential Path.DirectorySeparatorChar and Path.AltDirectorySeparatorChar.

Where Path.Combine will combine two paths and insert the DirectorySeparatorChar, I could not find the opposite, so I wrote this little piece of code:

using System.IO;

namespace BeSharp.IO
    public class PathHelper
        public static string RemoveTrailingDirectorySeparators(string directory)
            string result = directory.TrimEnd(Path.AltDirectorySeparatorChar, Path.DirectorySeparatorChar);
            return result;
