Formula:
=MID(A1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,"\","|",2))+1,LEN(A1))

Code version (no error handling):
Sub foo()
    Dim n                           As Long
    Dim rData                       As Range
    Dim vData

    Set rData = Range("A1", Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp))
    vData = rData.Value2

    For n = LBound(vData) To UBound(vData)
        vData(n, 1) = Mid$(vData(n, 1), InStr(InStr(1, vData(n, 1), "\") + 1, vData(n, 1), "\") + 1)
    Next n

    rData.Offset(, 1).Value2 = vData
End Sub

Probably a better way, but here's a formula which should work:

=RIGHT(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(":\",A1)-1),LEN(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(":\",A1)-1))-SEARCH("\",RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(":\",A1)-1)))
