    A User stores their "My documents" on a NAS unit
    I have a mapped a drive through to My Documents ok

    however after each reboot the Mapped Drive is not connected & the Username & password must be entered in the connection window, a connection is then established ok

    I have checked "Save credentials" on the connection window but after each reboot am asked to enter username & password again

    Thanks for all replies

    Hi.

    2 things to say.

    1) As soon as you map the drive and check the box to save credentials and it connects, reboot cleanly. Perhaps an unclean shutdown of the client machine is responsible for the dilemma and this will guarantee it can not be.

    2) If you make the NAS unit's username/password exactly the same as the client, the password will never even be asked for at all.
