Uploading to Google Drive

Manually upload files and folders to Google Drive

Google Drive allows you to upload and store files in the cloud. You can manually upload both files and folders, including images and videos.

Customize your manual upload settings.

How to manually upload files

There are two ways to upload files to Google Drive:

Drag-and-drop file upload

You can drag-and-drop your files directly from your computer into your Google Drive.

 

This feature is available only in the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox. If you aren’t working in the latest version of Chrome or Firefox, you can click the Upload button and select Files... from the drop-down menu.

File upload

To manually select files from your computer to upload to Google Drive, follow these steps:

  1. In your Google Drive, click the Upload button and select Files... from the drop-down menu.
  2. Select the file you'd like to upload. To select multiple files, press Shift or Ctrl and click all the files to upload.
  3. Your file will appear in My Drive.

Manually upload folders

Uploading a folder can save you the time and hassle of uploading individual files from your computer to Google Drive. When you upload a folder, you'll also save the time it takes you to organize your files and documents into folders. You can upload one or more folders to Google Drive at a time. Individual files within that folder will be uploaded, and subfolder structure will be maintained.

  1. Click the Upload button and select Folder...
  2. Select one or more folders to upload. All files and sub-folders within that folder will also be uploaded.
  3. A box that indicates the progress of your folder upload, as well as a list of the files being uploaded, appears in the bottom right of your Google Drive.
  4. When you're done with your upload you can click the link to open the uploaded folder in Google Drive or close the box by clicking the x in the upper right of the box.
