How can I identify the UNC Path of a Local Path location ?

I am trying to setup a program to sychronize a local folder to a network folder which is requiring the correct UNC Path to that specific location. The problem is I didn't know what a UNC Path was an hour ago let alone where to locate the correct one. Is there an easy way to locate this information?

I am trying to enter the correct UNC path for this network location S:\Scanned Images

Thanks in advance

See the screen shot - Use Windows Explorer to navigate to the Full Network Path

if you go to explorer it should say something like scans on server.

if you then browse to \\server
you should see the list of available UNC paths
which will likely incude scans
you unc path will then be \\server\scans
