New user - server 2008 with windows 8 client drive sharing

Last Modified: 2015-04-02
Someone in the organization has left and a new user is taking over their Windows 8 pc.
I had to leave & then rejoin the domain to get things to work which was fine, and now while it does seem to "map" the shared drives it asks for a username & password to access them, and when i enter the user's credentials access is denied even although the client is logged  on to the network
