You should be able to get it to remember your credentials by ticking the appropriate box on the screen that prompts for your username / password to map the drive in the first place. This may vary slightly depending on the version of Windows you're running, but I know I have the option for this in Windows 10. More information can be found on Microsoft's forums at the link below.

Do you have the nas credentials stored in Credentials Manager using the same URI scheme as the mapping?

 

For example, if you map it using the form \\NAS\*share*, make sure there's a credential stored for the URI \\NAS\. If you map it using IP address, make sure there's a credential stored for the URI \\ip address\. That should work for your account across login/logoff and reboots. It may require being set manually for each account on your machine though.

If you are still having issues after the above recommendations, you can make a script that remaps the drive when you start up the computer. Copy this into note pad and fill in your info. Save as a .bat file and put it in the startup folder. You can test the .bat file by running it.

 

echo off

net use "drive letter": /delete

net use "drive letter": \\"server name or ip"\"share name" /user:"user name" "password"

exit

 

Example

 

echo off

net use M: /delete

net use M: \\MyNAS\Share /user:ThisGuy password123

exit
