How long does Windows store credentials on a machine when accessing a share on another machine?

 

Example: I shared a folder on PC A (password protected) and accessed it on PC B. When I entered my username and password for PC A I made sure not to check Remember my credentials. However, when I go back to PC B later I am able to access the share on PC A without being prompted to enter my info again. I verified that no credentials for PC A were saved in User Accounts.

 

How do I clear or reset this so that PC B can not access the shared folder without once again being prompted for credentials?

Untick the option to save password?  Access will work though for as long as the user on PC B remains logged in afaik.

Don't suppose you're using the same username/password on both machines by chance?

Option was unticked, but you're right after logging out and back in on PC B I was again promted for credentials.
