Hi Experts,

Simple one. When I attempt to map a drive from my windows server 2003 to my XP Professional Workstation I'm not given the option to input a username (see image). However, when I attempt to login from XP to server 2003 I do get the option to add username.

Any ideas?

    For resolving this issue, go to  My Computer > Go to Tools Menu > Folder Options> on View Tab > Scroll down to the last Option "Enable Simple File sharing" uncheck it. (on Windows XP machine)
