I have a Seagate Central at home acting as a NAS and was already connected to one of the shared folders which was password protected. When I tried to connect to my wife’s shared folder to copy some files, I got this error:

non mapped network drive error

Hmmm, cryptic error but I was already aware that I was connected to my current share so I had to disconnect. But how?

First off, I issued this command to see my existing shares:

see existing shares

Seeing that I was still connected to a network share named home, I then deleted the connection:

delete current connected share

After that, when I tried accessing the intended shared folder, I no longer got an error but I was prompted for a user name and password:

login to network share

Which I happily obliged to put in the required user name and password. After that I was able to access my wife’s shared folder and get the family pictures I needed. Hope this helps ^_^

Only solution would be to update the firmware to DD-WRT. So upgrade I did. These are the steps I took to complete the [...]

Finally decided to retire my now 5 year old laptop, the reliable ASUS F8SG. Hasn’t failed me yet, stock hard disk still works after all these years though I upgraded it to SSD early this year. After a couple of weeks of search, I settled on an ASUS X555LN, box says this model is an ASUS [...]

I was just scouring the web to look for an equivalent to the Linux touch command on Windows 7 and landed on this goldmine. A set of native Win32 Linux commands! This is a better option than running Cygwin since applications run on native (that word again) Win32 mode and not in an emulation. This means [...]

This is a follow-up review on one of the most promising cloud companies I’ve encountered, DigitalOcean. I started with a droplet from them a year ago and published my experience with DigitalOcean here. Now, I’m still with them and I couldn’t be more happier. When I started out, things were a lot simpler then, there [...]

Google analytics is an awesome webmaster tool, but sometimes it can be a pain in the ass to manage it specially for the few who are in a hurry. I was cleaning up my analytics account and had to delete a couple of stale profiles, unfortunately the delete button for profiles isn’t easily accessible. So [...]

For a guy like me who has more than a hundred (and growing) different user names and passwords to remember it can be a frustrating experience whenever I forget a user/password pair. Fortunately, I don’t have to do that anymore though after I discovered the DropBox and Efficient Password Manager (EPM) combo. While a lot of [...]
