This feature allows monitoring of file transfers between a network share and local drives (i.e. local HDD or portable storage devices)

When this feature is enabled, files that are copied between local storage to or from a network share will be tracked in the AccessPatrol dashboard.

Network share is a shared folder within a networked computer on the LAN.  They are usually identified by a folder path beginning with \\ (e.g. \\vm-101\SharedFiles)

These may also have a drive mapping to appear as drive N or M for example.

NOTE: You currently can only track “Copy” and “Created” file types with Network Drives. The “Rename”, “Deleted”, and “Save As” options are not supported.
