Every time I try to map the NAS drive to my laptop or PC in vista 32 and or 64 it works only until I reboot my computer, it seems to forget my password even though re connect at logon is checked...
We are on the same workgroup, I can access at seagateshare.com ok
What am I doing wrong?
Im trying to use this at home, I have 4 boys and a wife all have 1-2 computers and Im trying to map drives to make backing up easier, I want to use todo backup,it works well at the office with an iomega NAS and I set up that as well what is wrong with my settings or with the goflex?

Ticking "Reconnect at logon" doesn't seem to work.
But if your windows username and password match the GFH credentials it doesn't keep asking for a logon. (thanks to gp55305 for this tip)
OR you can use the net use command in this format in a script in youtr startup (thanks to biztechtchr and ntpntpntp)
net use P: "\\goflex_home\GoFlex Home Personal" password /user:username
but then you expose your password in plain text
OR in Win 7 you can use credential manager to set up the GFH credentials and then it doesn't matter what your windows credentials are. (this is my preferred option but I haven't tested it in Win XP)
