Cannot copy files to a mapped drive, can to a shortcut though

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?

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

Are you map to "Z:"  "\\server\data" or "\\server"?

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?
