Whoops second line should read "I noticed that in ANY backup mode it just looks to skip over mapped drives and only lists local drives?" I can't seem to edit the original post anymore....
I figured that the File Level backup mode might expose the ability to do it but also checked volume level backup mode (thinking I might have to do the whole network drive as it didn't support file level).

If a FLR is selected from a mapped drive why can't it be programmed to inform the user that mapped drives are unsupported and please use the UNC path instead. (Just a thought because I didn't know mapped drives wasn't supported before I found this post after the fact)
Only reason I bumped this topic is because I tried to do a restore to my recently formatted laptop and after about 2 minutes I realized that mapped drives didn't work.

Jesse, This OP refers to the backup issue. As I’ve understood in your case you can’t use the mapped drive while running FLR right? Is it not displayed when you go to Browse the location, I thought we are using the native windows dialog there and you should be able to browse for a mapped drive?

I am able to go through the process and even selecting a snapshot from a mapped drive but when it tries to mount the backup job it fails every time unless a UNC path is selected. Is this a bug or intentional?
I could even send some logs if need be and open up a case.
