I am setting up a NAS at home and the last stage of the setup requires going into the "map network drive" setting.

 

When I do this I get a dialogue box from Windows (10 by the way ) Security saying Enter Network Credentials.

 

Ummm.

 

I have tried a few combinations but in every case I get "The network password is not correct."

 

I have entered the password for the device I am trying to connect to ( Raspberry Pi ), the password for the wifi and the password for my windows login, no joy.

 

Is there a way to discover this password or reset it?

 

Thanks.

if you are attaching TO a share on the remote device and prompted in windows. Don't forget to change the domain. Or it will use your PC as the source account (of which won't exist)

 

So would likely need to be nameofpi\pi <raspberry> or whatever changed to.

 

Alternate is make a user account on both with the same name and password so attachments either direction work :)

When I click Finish is when the Network Credentials box pops up.

Yep, but let's say your Pi is called "raspberry"; when prompted for the username you should enter "raspberry\peejayw", not just "peejayw".

yep and you will need to provide details of an account with access, by default it would normally submit details based on your local machines accounts. So assuming SAMBA is setup right, you'll need to ensure its sending as remotemachine\accountname as displayed here..

The account you created probably needs to be granted some more permissions on that folder.

your passwords for wifi or windows are not the password for the NAS.  Windows is prompting your for the password of a user on the NAS that has access to the share on the NAS, which you'll need to have set up.

Thanks, I now can see the drive on the Pi in Windows on the laptop but it shows as empty, must be some sort of permissions problem I guess.
