Unable to access shared folders in Fusion running Windows 10

Hi all, I’m running in to a frusterating problem. I am unable to access my shared folders in Fusion and am constantly running in to the following error message ‘Windows cannot access \vmware-hostShared FoldersDesktop’. I have tried removing access and re-adding access to the shared folders, restarting the VM, uninstalling and reinstalling VMWare tools, restarting my computer etc. I’m not sure what else to do in order to fix this problem and have fully shareable folders. FWIW I’m running Windows 10 on Fusion Professional 11.5.6, laptop is a 2019 MacBook Pro running Catalina 10.15.5. Suggestions?
