Hi all,

I have 4 hdd's in a freenas setup and I would like to transfer them to my pc.

Usually I would connect the freenas and would go to network option on my pc and would choose freenas and I would be able to copy the files from the hdd's. The problem is that it asks for password and I have no idea what it is, as before he never asked me for it.

When I'm trying to connect the hdd's directly to my pc they don't actually work.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Go into FreeNAS admin and create a user/password that you know. Then make sure that user has access to all the volumes. Use those credentials to connect to the FreeNAS.
You can remove the old credentials like this -- https://www.top-password.com/blog/clear-saved-credentials-for-network-share-or-remote-desktop/
