Come out of folder when using StartupPath.

Here the code to come out of the application folder when we using StartupPath.

Usually we woud be using the below code to retrieve the application path, which would be defaultly inside the bin\bebug folder,
so we would need to come out of the folder and access our data's

string path= new DirectoryInfo(Application.StartupPath);

so to come out of one folder use the below code

string exeFolder = new DirectoryInfo(Application.StartupPath).Parent.FullName;

to come out of two folder use the below code

string exeFolder = new DirectoryInfo(Application.StartupPath).Parent.Parent.FullName;

If this helped kindly put your comments on this...
