This is an Information Technology Supported, which has been authorized and one that is managed to give space for storage space electronically for the users that has been authorized for some given network. In some cases the dive is given the name as the J: Drive (Phillips & Skagerberg, 2003).  The use of the share drive is necessary because it enables information to be store in one place.

There are several advantages of making use of the shared drive for instance:

  • It enables the various members of a given staff who are working in some work areas to have knowledge of the exact place from which they have the ability of accessing enjoy form of information that they want.
  • It enables folders to be kept in a hierarchy that can be controlled hence enabling the electronic folders and the tittles of the documents which have been stored hence easing the situation in which some given form of information is required to be retrieved from the system.
  • The third advantage is that the electronic information which relates to a given single subject are able to be kept within a given place together. This makes it easier in the case anyone wants to have an access to any piece of information which are related.
  • For the sake of the places ad offices where the shared drive is used to store information in large number, it will help the concerned parties with ensuring that not even a single of the documents are duplicated since most of the data required will be stored at a central space for storage for the respective work area (Besanko, 2010). This makes it easier when it comes to sorting out of the files and hence makes it easier to retrieve it.

In the cause of making use of the Share Drive, individuals are always cautioned against storing official documents on their PC, on the personal drives they have or even the personal folders containing their emails or any media that is removable like the external hard drives. This is because malicious individuals can easily access it a by-pass one’s privacy.
