Suppose a user select a file, I want to find out its abosolute path in the form of "\\ComputerName\C\filename.txt".
I can find out that a file selected from a mapped drive is on a remote machine but how to find out the machine name from just the mapped drive letter?

Please try this Win32 function:
WNetGetUniversalName
It gets more universal name in the form of \\servername\sharename\path\file from a driver based path.
