This practice also helps protect against social engineering attacks and ensures a safer online presence.

It is typically a physical component, such as a hard drive or solid-state drive, that is installed within the computer itself. This storage is used to store and retrieve data and files directly on the computer without the need for an internet connection or network access. Unlike storage on the network, which involves accessing files stored on a server or shared network location, a local drive is specific to the individual computer and can only be accessed by that computer.

    A. Storage on another computer or server on the same network.
    Explanation
    A network drive refers to storage on another computer or server that is connected to the same network. It allows users to access and store data remotely, providing a centralized location for file sharing and collaboration. This enables multiple users to share and access files simultaneously, enhancing efficiency and productivity within a networked environment.

This is because a computer network refers to a connection between multiple computers that enables them to share resources, exchange files, and communicate electronically. It does not refer to a physical place where people build nets to catch computers, as mentioned in the incorrect answer choice.
