How do I correctly pip editable install on network share?

  pip, python, windows

My home directory is a network share, call it somelocationme, which is mapped to a drive letter (say F) on my work computer.

After running pip install -e . once trying to run uninstall or install creates an assertion error: Egglink F:codeprojsrc does not match installed location of proj at somelocationmecodeprojsrc

It looks like it’s an issue with the mapping, but I’m not sure how to get python to ignore/reconcile it
