Use credential manager in Windows 7 to remember the username and password for your NAS Drive if it doesnt remember it automatically.

Go to Start / Control Panel / User Accounts and Family Safety / Credential Manager

On the right hand side, right below where it says "Windows Credentials" Select "Add a Windows Credential".

Enter your NAS' Server name in the first box.

User Name in the second box and your password for the server in the third box.

Hi red_shift,

Welcome to Microsoft Answers!

I would suggest you to check the options in settings.

If it is a mapped network drive, Please follow the steps below:

 

1.      Open Computer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Computer.

2.      Click Map network drive.

 

3.      In the Drive list, click a drive letter.

You can choose any available letter.

4.      In the Folder box, type the path of the folder or computer, or click Browse to find the folder or computer.

To connect every time you log on to your computer, select the Reconnect at logon check box.

5.      Click Finish.

Your computer is now connected, or mapped, to the network drive.
