Insight Discovery failing during transport process

I have a servers that I'm working on discovery objects within the organization - a set of servers to begin with.  The scan is able to scan the servers, gather information, it creates the two xml's with the data, states that it creates the zip file - but then errors out - since it is trying to move the file.  I'm not sure why it is trying to move it, and where it thinks it needs to move it.  I'm aware of the bug that Insight Discovery has, with the file export directory, but I have verified the setting is there, and validates to be the "scans" directory.  


Not sure if anyone has seen anything like this or not, thought I would ask.


The end of the discovery log:

The newest version of the discovery application solved a few issues.  One, the export directory for file output should be set to your <Insight Install Directory>\import.    The newest version has allowed that setting to remain and does not get wiped out. 

I've also learned, that Windows 2019 Server is difficult to use - there is a compatibility issue that can be worked around as stated in documentation - but I returned to all 2016 servers and discovery has been working relatively well.
