    Network Drive Setup

    “Error connecting to network resource”

    Sometimes it seems that it’s not possible to connect to a certain share using our ‘Network Drive’ option. There are somethings that you need to keep in mind. First you need to clear all existing connections and credentials to this share because often multiple connections using the same credentials are not allowed.

    In this example we want to connect our NAS01 server.

    NetDrive.03

    Resulting error message:

    NetDrive.04

    To solve this we need to discconect all existing connections and credentials.

    – First Disconnect all existing Network Drives in Windows

    NetDrive.05

    – Secondly clear the exising credentials, with XP => Control Panel => User Accounts (depends on the OS)

    NetDrive.01

     

    – Select the share from which we want to remove the credentials

    NetDrive.02

     

    – Restart your system and connect again using our ‘Network Drive’ option.
