Hello,
Mapped a server share from another new server. Z:\data. Cannot copy files to the mapped drive. If I create a desktop shortcut such as \\server\data, I can copy files to the shortcut. Is this an SMB issue?
Thanks

Are you using similar copy for both methods, e.g. Windows Explorer?
Does it work from a different station?

Windows explorer. From one Windows 2012 server to another.

Do you have enabled UAC? Change this, remap drive.

Try to change a drive letter. Check pagefile options, change them and try to copy again. Did you look for errors or warrnings in Event viewer?
