I suggest you ...

Enable uploading of folders via OneDrive.com

Allow to upload whole folders for OneDrive on the web. It should be possible to upload folders by drag and drop from the desktop to the browser window.

        Inevitably I "lose" some files when I upload an entire folder. Since we are planning to ask our company to move large amounts to their OD4B, I am struggling with a recommendation for them regarding validating their content moves!

        When uploading an entire folder, some files always get 'lost' during the transfer....
        I tried several times and not always the same files are 'lost'
        The same problem can be experienced with Edge, Firefox and Chrome.....
        Meaning OneDrive is not fully reliable!!!
        Microsoft doesn't answer any request on that subject!

        Why only for Chrome? The last thing I want on my Mac is Chrome using all my ram memory

        We cannot upload an entire folder in Onedrive. That's a chame for Microsoft. Most cloud services do!

        Arrived here having just started Plex Cloud which boasts it can connect to OneDrive and same issue that it copies the folder and folder structure but doesn't upload all the files. Any fix?

        I uploaded a few big folders which had files and folders inside them. When I came back to check the next day, my OneDrive uploads were borked and all the folders were empty. I lost a lot of stuff.

        OK I just installed OneDrive on my PC and a new MS account. It is Dec 18th 2016 and I am having the same problem. One post had it correct - it copies the folder and folder structure but doesn't upload all the files. I am missing 4.5GB of a 5GB folder and now it says it can't upload it again because there is already a folder by that name. (Its just missing 90% of the files inside the sub folders). I also see zero response from MS on this topic over the past 2 years. Seems they don't want this business. Use your feet people and walk, - no run, run away... Back to Google Drive for me. Luckily I just copied not transfered....

        Yea, seems this feature was killed by MS again as per sept 2016 under their 'new experience' monniker

        I'm getting errors that "your browser does not support folder upload" but I am only uploading pictures. Also getting random errors for browser not supporting file type - random and not true. Having a sync cloud that I cannot tell if certain family pics are syncing is useless to me and I am wasting a lot of time!

        I tried to upload folders through Chrome and every time I get this 'Aw, Snap' error. Got one TB space online, but unable to use. Unbelievable that MS can't get such a simple requirement of folder upload correct on IE. My files are much larger than the space available on local drive. I guess I have to buy an external hard disk as well now. I wasted money on 365

        I am having the same problem: Total space of files to upload is larger than available space on my local drive so the only other way to get the files to OneDrive is to upload using my browser. IE doesn't support folder uploads and Chrome will randomly stop and give the "Ah Snap" error. Unless I can find a fix or a work around I am looking at a very tedious process to get all my photos uploaded. I am really looking for MS to step up and help solve this problem before I get worn out and go back to DropBox!

        I just tried using the upload folder function on my web onedrive because i didnt have enough space on my hard drive to sync it that way. Its been over 2 hours and all I have is the Folder tree with NO files!!! Whats the deal MS! I just completed a migration to Win 10 for my company (Because onedrive and ALL its functionality was supposed to work with Win 10!)and my last step was to get all user files off my file server and pushed to onedrive. If I have to do this file by file or even subfolder by subfolder, I'm not gonna be happy! Please tell me I did something wrong!

        This feature does not work - AT ALL. Also with the MS 365 offering, you cannot even install the one drive app if you have other programs that use a different installer, (Visio, Project). GIANT PHAIL for Microsoft Cloud Storage. StratServ - Microsoft Partner ID 4235427.. FYI Google Drive works great! What a shame.

        No no no no no no no it does NOT work at all. Boom you fail at everything. Don't care if I have the free account, way to make me not wait to pay for the service

        I can resurrect this, by saying no it does not work... In chrome it only creates a folder structure and randomly picks the files to upload.

      • Clay Olmstead commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It's not working with Edge. The directory tree gets created, but only a few files are uploaded. The empty folders have to be filled individually.

        I guess that's a vote of no confidence for Edge, when even MS designers don't use it to test MS products.
