Windows 7: Changing credentials / password of attached devices

06 Jan 2012   #1

Win 7 Home 64 bit
Changing credentials / password of attached devices

I have a NAS attached via my local network. I can see the device in Windows Explorer under 'Network' and had connected to the device and saved the password / credentials. However, I recently had to change the password on the NAS and I can no longer connect to the device in Windows Explorer as the passwords don't match. BUT I can't find how to reset / change the credentials / password in Win Explorer. I've tried removing the credentials using Credential Manager, but I still can't connect. Do I need to run Credential Manager as admin or am I missing something?
Thanks for any help.
