So you mapped a drive on your network but now it’s asking for a password every time you want to access it. This is how you bypass that:
Using this syntax at the command prompt, map the drive:
net use Z: HostNameShareName /savecred /p:yes
You will be prompted for a username and password, this info will be saved and you will not be bothered for a password again even after a reboot.
Here’s another way to do it:
Go to Start, click Run. Type “
Click the tab labeled “Advanced” then “Manage Passwords”.
You can use this feature on Windows XP and later.
