Cannot connect to SharePoint Folder



I'm getting this error in the image below when tried to link a few text files in SharePoint folder.

I'm logging in with a global Admin account and I have full read/write permissions to the folder.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I cannot repro the same issue using latest Aug 2017 version of Power BI Desktop on my side. Please try to clear the permissions related to this SharePoint source as following screenshot, and then try with another link like https://*** (without Operations here) to see if it works.
