Shared Folder or Shared Drive?

On one of my YouTube video tutorials, that was about Google Shared Drive, I had an interesting comment:


I’ve always struggled with how to justify a shared drive rather than create a folder and share it with groups (teams) of staff. I end up treating it much like a shared drive. I do this as an Admin, and I can restrict or expand various settings. I would appreciate if someone would show a comparison of creating a folder in Workspace that will be treated like a shared drive, and then show why that is limited and what you can do better on a shared drive to make it worth my staff learning how and to start using them.


So I set out to make a short but informative video for Google Workspace users to see why, in probably most cases, they should be using shared drives and not shared folders from their My Drive.
