Hi all,

I'm attempting to map a router attached USB external drive... I've had this drive mapped at a previous time then, for some unknown reason, I detached it, now I'm needing to re-map it again.

When 'mapping' a network drive Win 7 asks for the server name & password. OK, I do that, then Win asks for the 'network password'... Naturally, I don't know it, so I go to <start> <control panel> <network...> <homegroup> where I find the link "View or print homegroup password". When I click on this link, even if I right-click on it, NOTHING happens. I've tried this several times, with the same nothing every time. Any clues?
