Network disk access password not saved

Posted: 10-19-2008, 10:39 PM

I'm experiencing a strange problem.
I have two Vista biz pcs, one is a laptop and the other is a desktop.
I have prchased a network RAID drive for backups and storage and I have
created 3 volumes over this drive.
The drive file system is unix based, with a nice http-like
administration interface: I have to say to be quite satisfied by this
unit, whilst is not so fast and performing it seems robust and it makes
honestly its job.
However it showned a strange acces problem since the beginning.
I created three network disks to access to the drive volumes within the
MyComputer window.

Well, one of these "disk" has a password protected access.
On the laptop there is no problem while on the desktop it is impossible
to save the access password.
Each time I reboot there is the need to repeat the access procedure and
notwithstanding there is the checkbox for a "save password" feature,
Vista doesn't save the password so I must reenter it any time I first
access to the disk.
Once it has been entered the work is ok, and Vista never asks again a
second time. This means that the "conversation" between Vista and the
drive is never lost.

I there anyone who have seen the same problem ?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

It sounds like you are using a home edition of Windows Vista on your
desktop, and a business/ultimate edition on your laptop.

Somewhere along the line, Microsoft decided remembering windows networking
passwords accross reboots was a business-only feature, so this isn't
available in the home editions.

If you go to the following screen on your desktop:

- Click start
- Click control panel
- Click User Accounts and family safety
- Click user accounts
- Click Manage your network passwords (on the left)
- Click the add button

Is the option for "A Windows logon credential" greyed out? If not, try
adding your password here and see if it remembers it.
