Scan to Folder on Mac - Destination Folder is read-only - HP LaserJet 500 colorMFP M570dn

HP Recommended
HP LaserJet 500 colorMFP M570dn
macOS 10.14 Mojave

The Scan to Folder function on my HP LaserJet 500 colorMFP M570dn worked fine for years and then all of the sudden I start having the following problem.  When I use the Scan to Folder function to scan a single page and the original is blank or has very little information, the scan works/saves properly.  Once the original has more graphics or text, I get the following error on the Screen of the Printer/Scanner:  Cannot write to \\192.168.1.180\myname\Downloads  Destination folder is read-only, has wrong permissions, or is no longer available.  If I scan a page with minimal information on it, it scans fine and without error--a successful scanned PDF size is less than 43kb. 

I have reset the printer to factory settings but still get the error.  I have the latest HP Utility (Version 5.42.1 (1825)) and firmware (20180201).  I am running macOS Mojave version: 10.14.2 (18C54).  I am using an Ethernet connection between the printer and the iMac.

Any guidance is greatly appreciated!
