    Manage Network Share with Different Credentials


    I have the following use-case:


    I have all my pictures on a Networked Attached Storage (NAS) that supports Windows Sharing. I use Adobe Lightroom to manage my pictures. I want to map a network drive to a drive letter using either READONLY-ACCESS credentials or FULL-ACCESS credentials. When I am simply editing pictures, I want it to be read-only. If I need to add or delete files, then I need full access.


    What is the best way for me to quickly switch between sessions using different credentials while keeping the same network share letter.


    I have been searching the internet for quite some time and have been trying it out and nothing seems to be working. I can't even seem to disconnect from the network share, even after literally clicking "Disconnect" from the network share. I don't even know how to disconnect from a network share in such a way that Windows will ask me for the password again.


    I am using Windows 10 Home and Pro (two computers) and would like a solution that involves me either clicking desktop shortcuts like "Connect READONLY" and "Connect FULL ACCESS".


    Thanks.

    :)

    • Right click on “Services” and select “Run as Administrator
    • In the Services Window, look for Credential Manager Service and click “Stop”.
    • Restart the computer and go back the Credential Manager Service and set it to “Automatic”.
    • Restart the computer again.

    Please keep us updated if you were able to map your drives.
