I have a few users and I sometimes want to access a share belonging to another user.
In Windows Explorer I type \\servername\otheruser
I get the Username & Password box, I enter the users username and password and it doesn't work, I get access denied.

Why is this, it works with my own Username and password automatically because the Clearos username and password are the same as my windows ones.

T.I.A.

    None of the credentials in the list refer to my server name, most are Windows Live and one for one of my other machines on my network.

    Sounds like your windows client is caching the credentials on your local machine
