I have a map drive created from Tools > Map network drive.
The drive is mapped to a different machine's shared folder. So each time I switch off the machine, it asks for the password when I open the drive.
Is there a way to save this password?
Map the drive using this syntax at the command prompt:
It will then prompt for a username and password, which will be saved and will not prompt even after a reboot.
You can also add the credentials by opening Start → Run →
This feature exists on Windows XP and later.

First, if you're in a domain environment, you would give the correct NTFS permissions to the share and setup a login script. I like using net use
If you're in a workground environment, if you create the same user name and password on the shared machine as you're logging in at the client you can do the same thing.
If something like that isn't available you can specify the user name and password with the script.
I make it a little harder for the average user to know the permissions and set it as an exe with this tool.
