How to know the actual folder name in full path for a shared folder?

In a real folder of its full path as:
\\server1\folder1\folder2\folder3\apple\orange
you then get in to share the folder "orange" and change the Share Name to be "kiwi"

So after that if you type \\server1 in Windows Explorer you would only see "kiwi" -- you will NOT see all its parent folders.
Question to you, how to find out the UNC path "\\server1\kiwi" does have another real UNC path "\\server1\folder1\folder2\folder3\apple\orange " ?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you're admin, open CMD at server1, which hosts the share. Type:
net share kiwi
