mapping drives always require passwords to access

By tbulla ·
When I map a drive. Ever time I restart or leave the computer for a period of time. I have to relog into the mapped drive. So I always have to keep the passwords handy for all drives. I have clicked on save password but it never works I am am in a simple workgroup network. with no active directory.

Are you clicking "Reconnect at logon'?

Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.

Make sure the user

exists on all computers that have resources you want to share, and make the password the same for that user on all computers.

It is dumb to HAVE to do that

by jdclyde In reply to Make sure the user

but that is what I have found as well.

Why are you allowed to set the permissions on a folder for anyone, create the map TELLING it to remember password, and have it still not remember? GRRRR.

ya, same account on each system with same pass is the only work around I have found.
