Can't access network folder after switching users
Running Win 8.1 on a wired network with DHCP. When I first boot into user A, everything works fine and I can access my NAS as //server and the mapped drives that I created. However, if I switch to user B, I can no longer access the NAS or any of the pre-mapped drives for that user. When trying to access the server I get a "Windows cannot access \\server" dialog box and the error message 0x80070035.
However if I jump back into user A everything works fine. Any ideas?

What happens if you log out of A and then log into B?

Yep - if it was win7 - you would log in as user B
Control Panel > User Accounts > Manage Your Credentials (in left pane)
Add User A's User name and password
should be fine
Should work for windows 8 as well its in User Account settings somewhere or just search for "Manage Your Credentials"
