@twolfe Just to be clear, network DRIVES are different and involve mapping a drive letter to a url. Network locations are shortcuts to say a site that you can then navigate around using file explorer. If you have a lot of site collections then you would need to set up a location for each one but it's so quick and easy, I don't see that as a major issue.
The other options are:
mapping network drives to a site
using the OneDrive sync client which duplicates files on a local drive so they can be accessed via file explorer. This seems like a good idea but in reality even Msft acknowledges the sync client is buggy and can lead to versioning problems from having 2 copies of the same file.

@matt howell , OK, thank you. I was mapping a network location. I was able to map a network drive, and I will let them know how to do it, and they can decide if this would be easier for them then downloading the PDF, making updates, and then uploading the files.
