Make that

   curl file:////server/sharedrive/folders/file

or, more Windows-like,

   curl file://\\server\sharedrive\folders\file

and note that curl itself does not make a network connection here, but accesses
the *local* Windows file \\server\sharedrive\folders\file which happens to have
a name that is connected to a server file by Windows.
