Yes, that will work but you'll wind up with a string containing the quotes in the ps script. Need to remove them before using the input.

Why would I need to escape a single quote? Using a single quote (no escaping) doesn't solve the issue (and also breaks if the folder name contains a single quote) while using an escaped single quote just fails on any input as it seems to view the backslash as part of the argument and not as an escape character.

No, ps_arg's value will not include the ampersand or anything after it.
