    Hi John,

    I tested it in my environment and it works fine without your problem.

    Then we do some regular troubleshooting:

    1. Please check and share the same situation with other external users
    2. Please clear the browser cache or use the private mode to try
    3. If Require sign-in is checked, can the share be successful?
