Get the drive letter from a path that is already known

I have been successful in retrieving the PhysicalApplicationPath (see code snippet below)
For now, I just did a response.write to see the path.  Now what I want to do is get the drive letter of this path.  This sounds so simple, and I don't want to "over code"  Maybe I can use trim?

I want to put double quotes around the sAppDrive.... like............. "+sAppDrive+"  but of course syntax gets all crossed up with the rest of the statement.
