    Recently found something that resolved this for me.

    Open Control Panel, Credential Manager.
    Click on Windows credentials.
    Click on Add a Windows credential.
    Enter computer name in Internet or network address (in my case this was Desktop, I was on my Laptop).
    Enter userid and Password of the target computer.
    Click OK.

    That's all it took for. I can now share files and folders in both directions, including between local and Microsoft accounts.

    I had same problem. I connected my pc and laptop. When I try to open network and get in into my laptop to copy some files it says i need user name and password. Tried everything.. I read Ztruker's post and went to do same but it didn't help me. Then i opemed again Credintial Manager, Generic Credentials, there you can see user name and hidden password. Click edit and there you change password.That's it. Ty Ztruker. If you hadn't posted i wouldn't find problem

    If you're trying to read/write files on computer "A" sitting at computer "B" and your get asked for credentials, it is asking for the user/password of a user that exists in computer "A" so it can authenticate you.
    Essentially this is where I am stuck with a similar problem. I tried to log into the network and mistakenly entered the wrong credentials. It "remembered" these wrong credentials and I can't for the life of me undo the saved credentials. How does one reset these values? It's incredibly frustrating and should be quite simple.
    Just to clarify, when I try to log in, I receive this message: "You do not have permission to access \\[Network name]\. Contact your network administrator to request access." Well, I am the network administrator and I am sick of asking myself and granting myself permission, because it's not working.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thank you. I had tried this but it didn't work. I ultimately resolved it easily enough after trying a few other ways, by simply granting permission to "everyone" on the network drive.
    Thanks again.
