  • Hi Ahsan, I'm a communications rep with AvePoint. To answer your question, this seems to be a network issue. Please check if the connection between the file share server and the SharePoint server is fine, perhaps certain firewall setting could be  blocking the net share from accessing the SP mapped library folder, or a certain Token is missing here. You may even have to look at the permissions setting of the shared path.
