s/path/drive in its path/ for that last path.. thanks :)

Paths are (of course) unicode, but use a some culture sensitive compare to handle the case insensitivity. But there is no documented way to find which locale it uses for each (part of a) drive.
(That information is stored in the system portion of NTFS at format time and can vary over directories via junctions, etc.)

Thanks for looking into this.
