I have a drive I map to my computer that is a remote file share. When I try to download a document from Sharepoint 2019, then do a save as, when the windows explorer window opens, I can't see the remote mapped drive so I can't save to it.

    Hello @Bonomo, Tanya ,

    This may be because the interface of the mapped drive disappeared from the File Explorer due to the Connection time is too long.

    Although the interface has disappeared, its connection mapping relationship still exists. You can manually enter the interface name of the mapped drive in the file browser to save the document from SharePoint 2019.
