Support level: Free or trial
Actually, problem not quite solved yet.  With the above suggestions I can see the mapped drives, but attempting to drill down a drive's folders inevitably pops up the "unable to open this directory" message.  It does drill down one or two levels before the message pops up, but once the message is displayed it goes back up to the root.  Odd.

Hello Basil,

Do you open a mapped drive on the local or remote PC?

Regarding slow drilling down in File Transfer mode, this is a known problem and will be fixed in future updates. As mapped drives in File Transfer mode, please see this knowledge base article https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/kb/mapped-drives-are-not-showing-in-file-transfer-mode/

Me too, ( I have worked around this issue but would like it to be solved ). Note: All RU apps latest version.
Mapped drives issue - not displayed/accesible.
Suggestion, put an icon for Network Folders like tv.
