```I have a script that converts data relating to my work.

It works great on my Linux system but some of my colleagues run windows.
I am attempting to convert the file paths to windows but am having no luck.

I need to access 'memo.txt' in 'my documents' on windows & am struggling.
I have tried just about every combination of \ and / and \\ and // but
to no avail.
I need something like ...

C:\My Documents\memo.txt
