A mapped network drive is one of the most useful things a computer user can do. Think of it as a storage device that is not technically integrated and not part of your installation, but allows you to store and access your data as if it were hosted locally. It works like a storage drive that you have full access to but is physically stored on another computer.
The ability to map devices is present in most modern computer setups – whether it’s computers or phones. These mapped drives are widely used by people to store files that take up a lot of space on a network with a lot of disk space, while still being able to use them locally.
