Can't open links (in Bing search results) to results found in the networked drives

Hi. I have been looking at Search & Intelligence and using Bing as a potential enterprise search option for work but there are a few problems I can't seem to solve.

I have set up a Microsoft Graph connector and am using it to connect to an on-prem networked drive. The first problem is when I try to add \fakefile\data or \fakefile\data\bitbucket as a data source it won't work but adding \fakefile\data\IT does. Does anyone know why some work and some don't?

I continued my testing using \fakefile\data\IT and indexed 15,000 files. I created a Result type and a Vertical for the search results. Is there a way to display an icon to match the document type, like the other results?

Lastly, and this is a biggy, Bing is adding the Bing URL in front of the link to the file, rendering it useless. I have added an image for clarity. The first part shows the result, which is great. The next snip shows the URL as expected, also good. But the next snip shows what the URL is when you click on it. The final snip is the part of the JSON used to render the results. Is there a way to make the URL result usable?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
