Clear credentials for Shares

Hi

For example on a workstation or server I open a shared path like
\\server\data$ . If it is protected it will ask for username and password

After I have entered the credentials I am able to open the path without entering credentials again until reboot.

Now my question how do I delete those credentials without rebooting the system. Logoff and logon will not work.

Thanks

I think you need to clear the passowords in Autocomplete in internet options.
IE options->Content->Autocmplete button and click clear passwords

No this is not working thus is clears only the passwords in IE nor in the Store User Name and Password Option in Control Panel

In Windows Explorer, use Tools|Disconnect Network Drive

You can also run the following command in a command prompt:
C:\>net use /d \\server\data$

Well, this will work for mapped drives but I concern is about just open a shared folder will using UNC Path.

Type: "Net USE"  within a command prompt and look for all the paths listed that relate to your connection (especially those ending IPC$)
Then simply do:  "Net Use \\myserver\myshare\IPC$ /delete" (where \\myserver\myshare\IPC$ will be the name of the path you want to remove) on each of the paths until none are left.

Hope this helps.

No problem. The IPC$ (stands for interprocess connection) path is the one that generally caches the login info. Glad I could help you. - James
