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.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFold er.Personal)"

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