      Automate 100% Network drive credentials

      Hi i would like to automate my network credentials heres why

      i have a desktop in one room that backs up via Macruim Reflect to a network location ie a shared external hard drive connected to another PC. the problem is the backup fails to work due to the credentials needed to be typed in once the computer to be backed up is turned on. so in general i want to auto connect to a network drive with out entering credentials please help and see photo attached Thanks Paul

      Re: Automate 100% Network drive credentials

      Here is an article on backing up to another PC, which although you are using an external drive, is what you are doing. http://www.pcworld.com/article/23003..._other_pc.html

      You would be better with a proper NAS drive that does not depend on the other PC being turned on. That's how I back up mine.

      As well as having identical usernames and passwords on both machines, make sure they are both on the same Workgroup.
