let me start by mentioning my NAS is Seagate BlackAmour. Now I have found the issue related to this problem. the issue is that when i login to a folder on the NAS with a user and next time i select a folder which has different user rights to it. i get the error. Now to solve this issue is to somehow logout the previous user and then login with the new user. how do i do this logout or disconnect the previous logged in credential.

windows caches these credentials based on the server not the share - so once you log in to the server the credentials are cached. for that session.

yes exactly. now on the same server i cannot use different users to open a folder on the NAS. for e.g.

i login with user1 which has access to folder1 i do my work in this folder and then i click on another folder which requires another credential say user2.but when i try to login with user2 i get this error. so i need to first clear this user1 from the server and then login with user2

why do you need to do this at all?
the point of users permissions is to control access per PERSON.
you can give user1 access to both folders, and user 2 access to one folder if that solves the issue better, or use groups and have different users members of different groups
