comment How do I remove login credentials for a network location in Win7?
I don't recall exactly, but I'm fairly confident I would never type my password in plaintext. However I'm now using Windows 8 Pro, and I can no longer reproduce.

comment Windows 2008 R2 Folder Sharing across domain displays <Unknown Contact>
Thanks Ryan. Good to know that it's more of an aesthetic issue. I like the workaround you suggest about adding specific principals from Domain1 to a Security Group in Domain2. Domain2 is actually a DMZ, so my other options are limited for security reasons. Good blog post too.

comment Access Network Folder using Different User Credential
@MDMarra, I think there's some confusion. I was referring only to your comment dated "Jul 6 '12", not the answer by Paul. Using your suggestion, while the password will be masked in the CLI, it will appear in cleartext when navigating to the shared location via Windows Explorer.

Mapping this way with the password exposes a security vulnerability. Go to Windows Explorer and type a few characters of your shared path, and see if your password appears in plain text. It does on my computer (Win 7 SP1 updated with latest hotfixes as of today.

comment Access Network Folder using Different User Credential
@MDMarra, the danger of using \\server\share * to get prompted for password is that when you open Windows Explorer and begin typing the first few letters of the path... it shows the password in plaintext in the autocomplete dropdown for anyone looking at your screen to see. Security failure on Microsoft's part. (Tested using Win7 SP1 with latest hotfixes as of Mar-14-2013).

comment Trying to access windows xp shared folder but it does't ask for user/password
+1 This works fine for me, except I'd prefer to not tell my team to map a drive letter. Surely there's a more elegant approach.

Ouch, deleting using * is a bit overkill. A better route is to first type NET USE at the command prompt, then you can see a list of all connections and individually delete the problematic ones: net use \\server\folder /d
