    Hi folks

    Im running build 7022 (had issue with 7075 as well) and if i manually go to a samba share in explorer (\\server\share) it opens up fine. However if i map it, then reboot, its states cant connect and will then prompt me for a username and password (which it doesnt need)

    Any help?

    Save your credentials when mapping

    • Remove the mapping if it is there.
    • Reconnect to the share.
    • Right click to map a network drive
    • Click the check box "Use different credentials"
    • Click Finish
    • Enter your username and password that your share will recognize
    • Click check box for "Remember my credentials"

    Thanks for the answer, but the whole point was that the Samba share doesnt need a username and password at all.
