It isn’t uncommon to have some essential work-related data on the external USB hard drive that everyone in your office need to use from time to time. Clearly, it would be rather inconvenient to physically reattach the device each time a different user wants it. There must be a solution allowing access to that external hard drive over Ethernet (or other networks, s.a. Wi-Fi, LAN, or Internet). You can go with one of the two options we are going to talk about right here.
- Sharing your USB hard drive over Ethernet through a specialized application
- Making your USB hard drive accessible over Wi-Fi
Software for sharing a USB HDD
Using the software solution for sharing your hard drive over the Ethernet network may become the easiest way for you. No need to set up the network or get additional cords. Just use the USB over Ethernet software.
