Upload Files on DriveHQ.com Website

We know that "uploading files" has always been a tough job, that's why we have made uploading so easy. There are several ways to upload files to DriveHQ. You can upload files easily and securely from any web browser, DriveHQ FileManager or FTP client. If you prefer using DriveHQ Web, you can use Web Browser Based Upload. It is better to install DriveHQ client software. DriveHQ FileManager is a free program that integrates with the DriveHQ's cloud IT system. You can easily drag and drop files/folders from your computer to your DriveHQ cloud storage, schedule uploads with an automatic Backup feature, etc. You can download DriveHQ client software by clicking here.

Web Browser Based Upload

Log on to your account. From "My Storage" page, navigate to the destination folder, or create a new folder where you want the files uploaded to. Then click on the "Upload" button on the toolbar, it will pop up the "Upload Files" page as follows:

From the upload files page, you can upload local files to online storage by three ways.

  • Batch Upload (using Flash): you can select and upload maximum 20 files or 2 GB at once;
  • Basic Upload: you should select local files one by one and upload maximum 6 files at once. Dependent on your file size, it might take some time to finish uploading;
  • Drag & Drop Upload (using software): By using DriveHQ FileManager client software, you (paid members) can drag & drop local files to remote file server without size, quantity, time limitations.

The web-based file upload is designed to upload only a few small files. It is very inefficient if you need to upload many files or need to upload folders. It is also less reliable if you need to upload a very large file.

DriveHQ FileManager, DriveHQ Online Backup or FTP client software should be used to upload many files, upload folders, or upload very large files.

Use DriveHQ FlieManager (Recommended)
