Maranello,

You might check using OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to see if you may be able to spot anything off in the registry about the drive letters for them, and make any changes as needed.

If you are mapping drives/folders on a NAS, then you will need to use something like User-name@User-PC as your username instead + password.
This was THE most important note in order for my PC running Win 7 Pro x-64 to remember my mapped network drive credentials to a NAS via the Credential Manager control panel. Ish!!!! There were lots of convoluted work-around solutions on the web (there are some really confused people out there!), and your step-by-step with screenshots was by far the simplest and best solution, kudos!!!

For whatever reason if my User name was set to: User-PC\User-name (e.g.), then Persistence was set to: Logon Session. This resulted in having to manually connect to my mapped network drive manually every time I logged back in. But when my User name was set to: User-name@User-PC (e.g.), then Persistence was set to: Enterprise. Which now lets my mapped network drive connect automatically every time I log in.

The key here is to get Persistence: Enterprise.

Oddly enough though, I can use User-PC\User-name with Persistence: Enterprise to access a MacBook Pro laptop.

Just wondering, why couldn't I use Uer-PC\User-name with Persistence: Enterprise for my NAS? My NAS is an Apple Time Capsule which in Windows 7 reads it like a FAT32 drive. I suppose the MacBook Pro and the Time Capsule have slightly different file sharing protols.

What is the best way to take control of the Persistence setting in Credentail Manger?

Thanks Brink!

Hello Sampdoria, and welcome to Seven Forums.

To be honest I don't know a technical reason why either other than that's just the way it works with them. I wish I could give a better answer.
