Password always forgotten

Tue Jul 09, 2019 7:42 pm

I am using RPi 4 with 4Gb. I can connect to my Synergy Diskstation, via the Network tab in File Manager. However it never remembers my password/login even though I have selected "remember forever". It suffers selective amnesia!
To make matters even more tedious, I have to keep logging into the unit and then again at folder level.
Absurd!

pcManFM (the file manager in desktop version of Raspbian) suffers from a digital form of "demetia", and no fix in sight. no use demanding for that functionality, its a free app anyway.

some have changed to Thunar which I have tested on another OS on another SBC.
Thunar always connects to the network drives upon reboots (if you set it to remember passwords forever)

I, on the other hand, for network drives that I need to connect to every time my RPi boots, mount those network drives via /etc/fstab.
