When I connect my local machine SQL Server Express - I can see drives only my machine.

You need to copy the backup file to your local computer before it can be restored.

By default, I believe that the SQL Server service runs as "Local System".  This cannot access networked resources.

Open the services tab and change the owner of the service to be an account that has access to the network resource and stop and start the service.

On a server, you'd usually set up a service account to do it.

If it's your local workstation, you could probably get away with just using your network credentials (the danger with that in a production environment is that when your password expires and you change it, or if you leave you start having issues with authenticating the service on startup).

I  cannot access  network computer  where database resides- I do not have network credentials
I can see drives of the network computer only from SQL Management  Studio  when I do restore/ back up operation against database which is in network computer.
When I go to local database on my local computer - I am working in the same SQL Management Studio. But I do not see network computer drives.
What I can do in order to see network computer and my computer  drives ,  when I do backup/ restore operation in  for my local database?

As stated above, there is a limitation in that access to network resources is limited to the rights that the account that runs the SQL Server service has.

On the network computer, what account runs the SQL Server service ?  I will bet it has access to the network drives.

On your local machine, unless you can come up with permissions (talk to your network administrator maybe?) then your only other real option is to copy the backup files from the remote server to your local machine as stated in the first reply.

You may need to talk to your network administrator to get permissions you  need ... or have them copy the files you need to a place you can get them
