Uploading Files

Uploading Files

It’s a breeze to share files using Box, but first – naturally – you’ll need some in your account! You’ve got two choices: Use Upload Files when you only have a few to get to the cloud, and Bulk Upload when the job’s a bit bigger.
 
Adding Files Via Upload Files
 
1. Navigate to the folder where you want to send your files
2. Click the Upload button, and then choose Upload Files:
 

 
3. A pop-up window will appear, allowing you to select the specific file(s) you want to upload from your computer.
4. Select the specific file(s) and click the Open button.
 
Adding Files Via Upload Folders
 
1. Navigate to the folder where you want to send your files
2. Click the Upload button, then Upload Folders
3. A pop-up window will appear, which allows you to browse your computer to upload folders
4. Once you’ve added the files or folders you need, click OK to get them up to Box.
 
Quick Tip: Bulk Upload runs best on the latest version of Java; get it at java.com/en/download/index.jsp..  You can also just DRAG and DROP files or entire folder structures if you are working in Chrome.  Check out best-supported browsers for Box here.
