Help! Can't disconnect standalone laptop from a network share.
I think I may have done something stupid! Our staff laptops are not on the domain, but staff wanted access to printers and a central resource share on the server. On one of the laptops, I set the printers up first using add printer and giving the network address of the printer; when prompted for a username and password I gave a very basic level user. OK.
Then I used create shortcut to connect to the network share. I just right clicked on the desktop, chose to create a shortcut, put in the pathname to the share and gave the shortcut a name. I wasn't prompted for username or password, presumably because this was taken from the connection to the printers.
The problem is that there are certain folders in the central resource share that are set up so they are only accessible to teacher users, and this teacher wants access to these and doesn't have that access because of the basic user credentials I used to make the connection. And now I don't seem to be able to disconnect and reconnect with the correct credentials.
I tried going to command prompt, and typing net use * /delete /yes. That seemed to clear the connection, but then when I used net use to make the new connection I get a message telling me that I can't connect the same share to two different users, or similar, and I need to disconnect the share first.
Do I have to clear the printers too??? What have I done wrong??? Help! Please!
