  • The share hasn't been shared, or the share has been shared, but the logged-in user does not have permissions over the share.
  • The share does not exist.
  • The share has been renamed and the renamed folder share has not been shared.

Ensure that the credentials are valid, the share exists, and has been shared and the logged-in user has permissions over the share

Credentials have insufficient privileges over the UNC Location
