I have a Dell Venue 8 Pro running Windows 10. On the My Cloud, I have two shares. One is protected with a password and another one is not. Both shares are mapped to to the tablet with drive letters and all.
The thing is, everytime I want to access either share through the Drive letter link it will prompt me with one of my account passwords despite the fact that I check on the “Remember My Credentials” every time. Keep in mind that one of the shares is unprotected by a password so asking for this is really weird when it’s public to begin with. Even after I “Refreshed” Windows 10 on my tablet, the problem still keeps happening. There’s also a message that says “The Username and password is incorrect” below when it prompts me for my password but I am 100% certain I got the password correct as I’ve tested this a few times.
I have another Windows 10 tablet as well as a Windows 7 laptop and a 8.1 desktop. This doesn’t happen on any of them, which is why I consider it pretty weird that it keeps happening on this one. It’s especially annoying to have to put a password to access a share that’s not even password protected in the settings which is kinda weird.
Here’s where things get even weirder. Accessing the share via a direct IP shortcut (as opposed to the drive letter link) doesn’t prompt a password for the unprotected one, so it acts normal here. Still I need to access it via the Drive letter link and go through the password process for both if I want my Universal apps to be able to access them since they can’t uses shortcuts. To contrast, when I use my “other” Windows 10 tablet I never have to insert my password ever except for the first time and is kind of more convenient.
It may be a minor inconvenience but at the end of the day it’s still a bit weird and my other Windows 10 tablet shows that’s its normally not required think thus I am trying to look for a solution. It doesn’t appear to be the My Cloud since it only happens on my Dell Venue 8 Pro, but it’s not Windows 10 on general because I have another tablet with it that runs it fine. Possibly something in the network settings perhaps?
Any input or ideas is appreciated.
