Thanks for the quick response.

I ended up with this:

  function IsRootPath(APath: String): Boolean;
  //crude function, it maybe needs support for UNC drives
    D: String;
    Len: Integer;
    D := ExtractFileDrive(APath);
    Len := Length(D);
    System.Delete(APath, 1, Len);
    Result := (Length(APath) = 1) and (APath[1] in AllowDirectorySeparators);
