    Running Parallels 19 on M1 series MacBook Pro and cannot access any shared folders either on the MAC side or the Windows 11 side.
    Both are enabled in the configuration, none are showing under networks on the MAC finder and no folders and none are showing as network locations in Windows. Totally useless piece of software for system integration.

    Only way I could access the folders between the VM and the host was to create a share and mount the share. Works but not as advertised.

    Hello!
    Kindly try reinstalling Parallels Tools as a preliminary step: Actions > Reinstall Tools and follow on-screen instructions. Once done, restart Windows and check if the issue remains.

    OK that worked, not sure why I had to reinstall when they had already been installed.
