Hello,
Is it possible to upload an whole archive with files without having to zip or use other compressionware on the archive first?
I can only find ways to upload one file at the time.
I would like to upload all my bookmarks.
Thanks!
Ps. This was the closest topic area I could think off..

Uploading and zip are actually two different things.

You can upload files (single, multiple, or entire folders) with any good ftp software:

http://www.cuteftp.com/
http://www.ftpvoyager.com/

etc.

Zip archives are just a way to "package" a number of files so that the file sizes can be reduced by compression.

Does that help?

If you have an ftp account to a server then yes you can, the simplest thing to do is use windows built in ftp, simply open 'my documents' or any other basic window, and in the address or location bar type in your ftp server address.... one logged in, you can transfer files as easy as drag 'n' drop.

However if your uploading through a web interface, then the answer is no - especially if your doing it without zipping, Im afraid it will have to be individually uploaded. Depending how good the upload page is, you may be able to upload 5 or more files at a time however.
