How to determine "My Documents" path for user with roaming profile

I need to identify the path to a users "My Document" folder where the
user has a roaming profile and their "My Documents" folder is mapped to
a network share as the H drive (specifically H:\\ - where the "My
Received Files" folder path then is H:\\My Refeceived Files. The double
\\ is not an escape character as subfolders only have sinvle "\" when I
am doing some investigation of paths in code).

It appears that the code, below, that I have tried to date, can only
deal with a local "My Documents" folder location and not one on a
network share.

"Environment.Ge tFolderPath(Env ironment.Specia lFolder.Persona l)"

Can someone help me in how to identify the path on the mapped drive or
the full UNC.

Thanks

Grant

Is there a way via C# to programmatically retrieve the full path name to folders like "My Documents" ?? I'm seeing examples with the use of Shell32 stuff I believe, SHGetSpecialFolderLocation and I have no knowledge nor experience using such stuff. I've seen some examples pertaining to these special folders but it's all Greek to me and I'm sure somebody here could explain it 100 times quicker

On *nix, ~/foo refers to a file in a user's home directory. On MSWindows, users normally look at "My Documents" in their home directory. ISTM that a file that my program would put in ~/. on Linux should be put in "~/My Documents/" (modulo os.path.normpath()) on MSWindows, where a user would expect it. How do you guys cope with this issue? ________________________________________________________________________ TonyN.:' ...
