That \ is the .Net escape character.
Say you wanted to split a string on the double quote you would write it as
split("\"") otherwise the second quote gets detected as the end of the string.

Which means you need to have ("db\") to stop the \ being the escape character and be read as the character you actually want.


You can use @"db\". The @ tells the compiler not to treat the \ as an escape character.
From MSDN:
because the backslash () is an escape character, literal backslashes in a string must be escaped or the entire string must be @-quoted.
