I'm running Windows 7, and I have various network drives that were previously mapped.
I want to check which credentials were specified at the point that the mapping was created.
How can I see this information?

I doubt you will find that information, but if it is anywhere, check the security log. – KCotreau Jul 5 '11 at 15:51

Computer Management->Shared Folders->Sessions will show anyone currently connected, along with the username they are connecting with

I think the OP is talking about disconnected drives. – Not Kyle stop stalking me Jul 5 '11 at 17:54
If so, then he has to hope the security logs got it... But doubtful. It won't by default – Canadian Luke Jul 5 '11 at 18:15
@Kyle, I'm referring to connected drives – crowne Jul 6 '11 at 7:51
@Luke, thanks for the answer, it was the reverse of what I needed. It shows who is connected to my shares, I needed to see what user I had connected as to a network share. So I logged on to the server using Remote Desktop, and found my session from there. Thanks! – crowne Jul 6 '11 at 7:57
