Windows 7: Password required at each connection

12 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professionnal 32 bit
Password required at each connection

I have 2 PC (desktop and notebook) running Windows 7 Pro
One of the drives of my desktop is shared
I recently reinstalled my notebook (w<hich was previously running 7 pro as an upgrade of Visata Pro)
Since this reinstallation, each time I want to access the shared drive from my notebook, I'm obliged to enter the account and password, even if I validate the "remember" option

Does anybody have an idea of how I can fix that?

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

To access the drive without restrictions you should be able to get around the password problem by going into the Security tab and allowing for permissions there, adding Everyone to the permissions list and adding checkmarks to the desired share level should work. Although from a security stand point you would be better off sharing the entire User folder instead.

It also can help to turn off password protected sharing in the Advanced Sharing settings both Public and Work-Home.
