Exporting a project to a network drive fails


Encountering errors while attempting to export a project onto a networked drive? The process may fail with an error resembling the following:

Command failed: zip -q -r "\\\Exploratory\ExportTest.epf" _archived_project index.json -i@zip_include.txt -x@zip_exclude.txt && rmdir /S /Q _archived_project


If you face this issue, here’s a workaround that should help:

Rather than exporting directly to the network drive, perform the export to your local drive. After the export completes successfully, manually copy the EPF file to the intended network drive location. This manual transfer should allow you to bypass the encountered error during the export process.
