    The SSRS service account is the one exporting to the file share, so that service account needs write permissions on the file share.

    Hi @Vinaya Velli,

    You may need to give the read and write permission to the share folder for below account.

    If you configure the file share account, all users can select the account for any subscriptions that are configured to deliver reports to a file share. If this option is not selected, the file share account is not available on any subscriptions.

    Note, you need to verify the account you configure as the file share account has read and write permissions to any file shares users will use for file share delivery.

    The following image is what users see on subscriptions that are configured for file share delivery. The Use file share account is disabled if a file share account has not been configured.

    Hi @Vinaya Velli,

    Select the Subscription Settings option in Reporting Services Configuration Manager tool

    Checked to specify a file share account option. You need to specify a valid windows user name and password there.

    And then use the windows file share account for a try.
