Absolute path for a mapped drive letter

KevinBrady57 asked:

Open original thread
I just discovered that VB2010 code will not let you write to a mapped drive letter.

For example if "W" is mapped to some location, the following will not work:
My.Computer.FileSystem.CopyFile("C:\TEST1.TXT", "W:\TEST1.TXT", True)

So, the question is, is there a method to get the absolute path for a mapped drive letter?

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
