Remove everything before backslash in string?

I am trying to remove some unwanted characters before the backslash, but it is ignoring some machines as they have different name standards.

I want to remove the domain name and machine name from the Local Administrator group.

 My data comes like this in one string as below

labmachine000r\administrator labmachine000d\support  labdomain\admingroup labdomain\helpdesk

I managed to remove the characters before the backslash using this

 

| eval adminlocal=replace(adminlocal, "\w+(\\\\)+","")

 

and my result is like below:

administrator support  admingroup helpdesk

That is working fine for the machine above, but if I have a machine name like "L-02labmachine000r", the replace command gives the result like this:

L-administrator L-support admingroup helpdesk

Is there any way to adjust my replace command to cover that machine name?

Something like this....

| eval adminlocal = "labmachine000r\administrator labmachine000d\support labdomain\admingroup labdomain\helpdesk"
| eval adminlocal=replace(adminlocal, "\w+(\\\\)+","")
| eval mc = "L-02labmachine000r\administrator L-02labmachine000r\support L-02labmachine000r\admingroup L-02labmachine000r\helpdesk labdomain\admingroup labdomain\helpdesk L-99labmachine000r\admingroup L-0216labmachine000r\helpdesk"
| eval new_mc=replace(mc,"[\w\d\-]+(\\\)+","")
