    win 10 user login for network drive- no account

    Hi all
    Mods feel free to move to appropriate sub.

    I am having a issue with a network drive and Win10
    ASUS AC 3100 router with a usb connected Western digital My Passport portable 1 tb drive.
    The issue is when I attempt to access, I'm told to login to a live account. I forgot the password so I went thru the recovery procedure and Live said there was a problem with the account and delete the account and re-establish. I figured once the account was gone no problem, except the PC still wants a live password for that particular account.
    1- What do I do now?
    2- login for the PC is a pin, can I use the same pin to access the drive?
    3-if so how?
    4. Should i re-establish the Live account

    Create a new local account and inherit the permissions of the user folder for the previous one.
