    Access network drive after autologin with another user not possible


    Hello together,


    I´ve got the following problem:


    The PC I´m talking about is configured with a general autologon user. Is the user logged in, he has the possibility to connect to a network drive to access his specific files with the personal user, which are stored on the server . Before the user get´s access, he is asked for his credentials. Now there are three different situations that occured:

    1. I have access
    2. I have no access Failure report: "You cant access \xxxxx\xxx..... . You don´t have the rights for the access to..."
    3. First I have no access, after about ~5 minutes I got access.


    I´m not sure, but I think it could be that he get my credentials, but nevertheless accesses the network drive with the rights from the general autologon user, not from the personalized user.

    If I log off the general user after autologon and log in with my personal user on the PC, there are no problems with the access. But unfortunaly this is not a solution.

    Anyone with the same problem or with some suggestions to solve this problem?

    Best regards!

    :)

    Cannot access shared network drive


    Personally, I wouldnt use Everyone. If anyone hacks into you, they have full access to everything and can demolish everything on your raid. I would rather set up accounts and access separately for each person. That way, I know who did all that damage. In the end with a little extra work, I feel more secure by using Authenticated Users.


    If this helps.
    step 1 create non-microsoft account and without email and address without admin rights
    step 2 share a drive or folder to specific user account (if Everyone is listed, remove it)
    step 3 set security > add Authenticated Users (if more than 1 account) or add specific users
    step 3a remove Everyone from list
    step 3b uncheck full control and write for all items listed except SYSTEM and Admin account.
    step 4 right click Start > Computer Management > System Tools > Shared Folders > Shares ... to verify settings and change anything else. You can also see the number of connections to each share here.
     
  3. Restrict Network Drive Access to User

    Hi Beach,



    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Windows 10. I will certainly help you.



    This issue might occur if there network discovery option is enabled on the computer.



    To assist you better, please provided us the information below:

    • When you say that "kids have a local account", is the child account configured as standard user account on the computer?


    I suggest you to follow the steps below to hide the network discovery of the computer in the shared network.

    1. Click on Search bar.

    2. Type "HomeGroup" without the quotes in the search bar and click on it.

    3. Then click on Change Advanced sharing settings.

    4. Expand Private.

    5. Turn off network discovery.

    5. Expand Guest or Public.

    6. Then turn off network discovery
    option.

    7. Click on Save changes button.

    Please get back to us with an update on issue with restricting network drives to the child account, we will be happy to help.



    Thank you.
