  • Map Drive Password


    In my organization we are using Windows 2003 Server and XP Pro Clients

    I have made setup for File Server ie created a folder shared it and created mapped network drive on client this works fine.

    My requirement is somewhat like this... At the first time wen Client is booted and double clicked on this Mapped Drive it prompts for User name and password this is perfect ok

    But when user closes this window and once again try to open this mapped drive this time it will not prompt for user name and password... coz login credentials are stored.

    So my need is like this: It should prompt for Username and Password at ALL THE TIME NOT only for the first time wen PC is sarted. Till computer is shut down whenever user tries to open this mapped drive, I NEED IT PROMPT fot the USERNAME and PASSORD.

    Please help me anybudy in this regards please

    When you enter the credentials the first time they are cached.
    You can prevent this through policies -- sorry, can't find the exact setting right this moment

    Why aren't you using a domain though?
