You can't!

Here's the work around:

For *nix (Linux, Unix).

    use symbolic links, eg:
    ln -s /dir1 /dir2           #you only need to upload files to dir1
    ln -s /dir1/file1 /dri2/file1 # just need to upload file1 to dir1

For M$ Windows, use short cut (dir/file short cut).

...and on unix, create a script to run from cron.
