Hi there Adam, can you please tell me why is YetiShare (uCloud as well, in demo versions) extracting the files when uploading the whole folder with the files in it or folder with subfolders? That's make the whole thing really difficult. I don't want to organize and research the files manually on the server again!
2. I couldn't stop the uploading while uploading, something is missing here?

I think these issues are very important to solve.

Thanks Kindly.

Regards

Mateo

Hi,

Browsers simply do not fully support folder upload yet, when they do we'll provide the functionality. In the mean time you have the following options:

- Use the file import tool via the admin area. (YetiShare & uCloud)
- Use the archive plugin and upload a zip of the contents. (YetiShare)
- Use the WebDav plugin and use a webdav client on your desktop to upload folders, files etc. (YetiShare)

2) You can stop uploading simply by reloading or leaving the page.

Many thanks,
Adam.

Hi, thank you for answering. This issues with uploading entire folders and it structures in it, is already solved by all main sharing and storage platforms like Dropbox, dropzone, googledrive, onedrive, amazon. I have tested them with chrome, Firefox and edge. You can even choose while uploading the "upload folder" function only!

This bug was solved in Firefox 4 months ago: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1188880

Officially browsers are supporting folder upload now.

This feature is crucial to solve in YetiShare.. Maybe you could implement Java Upload Applet in the script to solve it.. http://www.javaatwork.com/java-upload-applet/details.html
..or offer a new plugin :) I don't know.
Ok, thanks Kindly

Sorry but it doesn't yet have full browser support. Most browsers support folder upload but not all support sub-folders. In addition, we can't just support all new browsers, we have to work with relatively older browsers aswell.

Java isn't an option as it adds a browser dependency.

I would recommend you use one of the 3 methods I've listed above. We'll keep looking at folder upload and once it's well established, look to support it.

Thanks,
Adam.
