Hi All,

My office is using a NAS which where there are 2 folders which are using different passwords. I had no issue when using XP pro to access and map the folders in the past. But now when we have upgraded to Win 7 Pro, somehow we are unable to simultaneously access the 2 folders now.

To illustrate the issue, the following are the paths for the folders:

\\TheNASname\folder1 which is mapped to S: drive
\\TheNASname\folder2 which is mapped to T: drive

under Win 7 Credential Manager, the following was saved:

Internet or network address: TheNASname
Username: guest
Password: password1
Persistence: Enterprise
Edit Remove from vault

The issue is if the password was remembered for folder 1, i can't access folder 2 in the popup window asking for the password when the password is entered the window persists with the following "specified network password is not correct".

The only time I can do so is to have the password amended inside the credential manager.

It's pretty troublesome to have to access the credential manager each time i need to access the other drive.

Does anyone have know how to resolve the issue? I've tried to google and search and did not seem to find a solution, or perhaps missed it, so would greatly appreciate advice or known solution for this issue.

Thank you!
