  • Click Add Files and the selection dialog box appears (see below).
  • Navigate to the folder or file you want to copy.
  • Select the folder or file.
  • Click Open.
  • The files will appear in the Upload window.
  • Click Start Upload.


  • Open Windows Explorer
  • Navigate to the files or folders you wish to upload.
  • Drag them to the Upload Window.
  • Click Start Upload.
  • Double-click on a file to Open or Save it.

Macintosh users:

Some APPLE written applications, such as Keynote, actually consist of multiple underlying files. In order to successfully upload such files, right-click on the file(s) and select "Make archive" or "Compress" depending on the version of Mac OS you are running. Then upload the compressed version of the file.
