private void btnBackupEngagement_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            this.Cursor = Cursors.WaitCursor;

            Backup.Backup bck = new Adra.Backup.Backup();
            DsAmDb ds = bck.GetEngDataSet(myOper);
            XmlWriterSettings settings = new XmlWriterSettings();
            settings.Encoding = Encoding.Default;
            settings.Indent = true;            
            //string path = txtBackupFilePath.Text.ToString().Trim();
            string path = Path.GetFullPath(???);
            //if ( txtBackupFilePath.Text.ToString().Trim() == "")
            if (txtBackupFilePath.Text.LastIndexOf('\\') != 0)
            {
               

                //if ( txtBackupFilePath.Text.ToString().Trim() == "")
                if (path.ToString().Trim() == "")
                {
                    MessageBox.Show("Please select a folder to save backup file.");
                    return;
                }
                else
                {
                    //string path = txtBackupFilePath.Text.Substring(0, txtBackupFilePath.Text.LastIndexOf('\\'));
                    if (txtBackupFilePath.Text != "")
                    {
                        if (Directory.Exists(path) == true)
                        {
                            if (MessageBox.Show(GetValue("thefolder") + " " + path + " " + GetValue("doesnotexist") + "." + "\r\n" + GetValue("doyouwishtocreatefolder"), GetValue("info"), MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question) == DialogResult.Yes)
                            {
                                Directory.CreateDirectory(path);
                            }
                            else

Maybe I misunderstood at first.
Maybe You should use

            folderBrowserDialog1.ShowDialog();

This function
System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(saveFileDialog1.FileName)
gives You the saved file path.
I don't know what is Your problem then.

string path = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(saveFileDialog1.FileName + dateStr);

should be rather

string path = System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName(saveFileDialog1.FileName) + dateStr;
