I have an external drive connected to my Asus RT-N66U Router and enabled the Network Place (Samba) Share/Cloud Disk option, this created a shared folder called MyNetworkDrive on the external drive. Within this shared folder I created a series of sub-folders and I then used the routers GUI to create a series of users, each with different permissions to each of the sub-folders.

Everything works great, when I first click on one of these sub-folders I'm asked for my credentials, I entered one of the users credentials to sign in and test the permissions, trouble is I left the Remember Credentials options checked and now I can't sign in with a different user.

I cleared out my Credential Manage, but when I go into MyNetworkDrive, windows still uses the existing credentials.

I tried the Map network drive... with the Connect using different credentials option, but it says:

The network folder specified is currently mapped using a different user name and password. To connect using a different user name and password, first disconnect any existing mappings to this network share.

Is there any way to reset or change the login credentials of a shared network folder?

    It's likely you still have a connection open to the remote system. Issue net list from the command prompt and then net use /d any of the connections to the remote system. – ssnobody Jun 3 '15 at 0:34

It's likely you still have a connection open to the remote system and are re-using the credentials from that connection. Issue net list from the command prompt and then net use /d to delete any of the remaining connections to the remote system.
