Getting full file path for a windows network mapped drive

I have an application using a network mapped drive to access a file. For example I have:

A windows network ( W: ) drive mapped to \\file_server\data

I am looking at a file called file1 that lives in \\file_server\data\

When I get the file path in code it looks like "W:\file1"

I am trying to get the full path "\\file_server\data\file1" returned, but I cannot seem to find away to do that.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
