Bug Report OBS doesnt allow recording to NAS when launched as Administrator


New Member
I'm trying to setup full screen in-game hotkey recording so I need to run OBS as administrator.

The issue is when I launch as admin OBS wont allow me to record to my 6TB NAS which is the only place I have enough storage.

When I launch OBS without admin privileges the NAS device is shown and recorded to without issue. Logs attached.

Screenshot when launched WITHOUT admin privileges:
