I connected to my NAS using windows explorer, by entering \\DS412 in windows explorer. It prompted me for a username and password. I entered them and then the DS412 showed up under Network in Explorer. Worked fine.
The share was listed by NET USE and I used this command to disconnect:
NET USE \\DS412\IPC$ /DELETE
And that worked fine. Once.
I then reconnected using username and password, this time I checked the box to remember these credentials. Worked fine.
Now I again want to connect as another user. So I would like to disconnect from \\DS412 and reconnect using different credentials.
I tried using NET USE, but it no longer lists the \\DS412. Entering NET USE \\DS412\IPC$ /DELETE again results in The network connection could not be found.
Restarting the computer does not help. The \\DS412 does not automatically show up under Network in Explorer, but if I do enter \\DS412 in the Explorer bar, it immediately reconnects using my old credentials without prompting.
Note that I am not mapping this UNC path to any drive letter. I have found this advice, but as you can see it does not help. I have found suggestions to use regedit, but I do not find the exact keys suggested, and I would really prefer not to hack the registry. This should be doable using command line commands?
I am running Windows 7.
