## Solution:

In Windows, if you have mapped network drives and you don't know the UNC path for them, you can start a command prompt (Start → Run → cmd.exe) and use the net use command to list your mapped drives and their UNC paths:

C:\>net use
New connections will be remembered.

Status       Local     Remote                    Network

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OK           Q:        \\server1\foo             Microsoft Windows Network
OK           X:        \\server2\bar             Microsoft Windows Network
The command completed successfully.


Note that this shows the list of mapped and connected network file shares for the user context the command is run under. If you run cmd.exe under your own user account, the results shown are the network file shares for yourself. If you run cmd.exe under another user account, such as the local Administrator, you will instead see the network file shares for that user.
