Not familiar with Adobe Drive?

Adobe Drive is an application that allows one to connect the following CS applications (InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop and/or InCopy) to a DAM (digital asset management) system. Having an Adobe Drive integration provides full access to content on a DAM system from Adobe Bridge, the Explorer or Finder and includes the ability to check in, check out, add check in comments, compare versions etc. from directly within the supported CS applications.

In addition to Adobe Drive, to fully enable the connection to a DAM server, one needs an Adobe Drive plug-in (what we call connectors) to interface with the DAM system. Included with the Adobe Drive installer are 2 connectors. A connector that will work with the Adobe Experience Manager DAM and a generic CMIS compliant connector that will work with servers that implement the Content Management Interoperability Services (CMIS) specification. There are also connectors available from third-party vendors. The Adobe Drive SDK is publicly available here which provides more information as to how to create a connector that will work with Adobe Drive.
