using cmd prompt, how can I get the location of a share? I know the name of the share, but when I remote onto the box, I can't see where the share location is.

net view shows me the names, but not the locations.

Try using the net share command instead, ie simply:

net share

It will show you the 'resource' associated with the share which in your case should be the location on the disk.
