why does azure cloud shell requires fileshare to be mounted

While launching Azure Cloudshell, it asks for a fileshare to be mounted. I am assuming that it is required to store the commands that we execute. However, a detailed explanation would be greatly appreciated as I'm new to Azure.

Also, please share any document that provides an explanation for this
