Issues setting up Scan to Share for workstation using local user.

HP Recommended
MFP M630
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I'm trying to set up Scan to a share on this printer but everything I've tried so far the Verify Access button produces a failure message. 

I've created the shared folder on the computer and I can access it fine from other computers and "everyone" has permission to read and write. I've also create a Local user named Scans to have a user account for the scanner. 

For the scanner set up I'm using the \\\share format using the IP and share name for the Folder Path. 
Authentication settings are set to Always use these credentials. 


And then here is where my issue is. Since this is a local user and not a domain user I have tried multiple different things for the Windows Domain, and Username fields. The PC is on a domain but being logged onto as a local user, and the scans user I created is a local user. 
I've tried using the .\ in the domain name and the username in the username field. 
I've also tried leaving the domain field blank and putting the username in as .\username 
I've tried using the computer name in the domain field. 
I've tried keeping the domain field blank. 

Everything I could think of to try It just fails. 

Any ideas?
