Octave windows builds are based on cygwin, which mounts the
root directory "/" to somewhere in the windows folder heirarchy.

For octave-windows-2000oct25d.exe, I believe / maps to 
C:\program files\gnu\octave.

You can't cd .. below /.

However, cygwin understands normal windows paths, so you can

cd "C:/path/to/somewhere"

or even

cd "D:\\path\\to\\somewhere\\else"
