FYI, you can use forward slashes too, i.e., the following will work:

ls //epic/devspace-cm/scripts

(so no need to double the backslashes, or to quote).  BTW, quotes don't do
anything in this particular case anyway, as the only thing you need to
protect are the backslashes, which aren't protected by double quotes.
