Replace character with backslash

I have run in to at bit of a problem.
I have some Groupnames in the format AAA.BBB.CCC and I want to replace all the dots with backslashes.

I have tried with this:
$a = "AAA.BBB.CCC"
$a -replace ".","\"

Open in new window

But it just returns:
\\\\\\\\\\\\

Open in new window

How do I force it to return
AAA\BBB\CCC

Open in new window

Hi,
the period means any character hence you have to "escape" it like
$a = "AAA.BBB.CCC"
$a -replace "\.","\"

Open in new window

Thanks a lot. I was convinced it was the "\" that caused the problem.
