1.

Disconnect the mapped drives and reboot the computer to clear any cached username/passwords.

 

2.

Navigate to [Start] - [Run] – “LinkStation”, replacing "LinkStation" with the Network Name or IP address of the LinkStation. This will display a list of the shares on the unit.

 

3.

Right-click the share with access restrictions and choose [Map Network Drive].

 

4.

On the Drive Mapping window, click on "Connect using a different username".

 

5.

Enter the username as "Linkstationusername" ("Linkstationusername" being the IP address or network name, whichever was entered before) and enter the password.

 

6.

Click [OK], choose the drive letter, and click [Connect]. This will connect using the users on the LinkStation instead of the local users on the computer.
