I have about 15 GB of files to put on our Sharepoint site, is there an easy/fast way to upload the files from the server?

If you intend to keep the existing three structure you can use the uploaded multiple files option. Go to Shared Documents. Click on Upload->Upload Multiple Documents. Choose the files and folders. And follow the rest of the steps it guides you through.

Sorry that method with only do files. To import a folder structure, go to Shared Documents. Choose Actions->Open in Windows Explorer. Now you can use typical drag/drop and copy/paste to move any content you need. You can move the content in SharePoint after you imported it if needed too.

When I try to open Explorer View on the Server,  I get a message that the client does not support that view.  I can from client machines, but it is very slow to upload so many files.

You need to use Internet explorer 32 bit not the 64 bit


but in general there is a better option

Map a drive to your library

How to :


Add network place  type in the URL to your SharePoint library .

http://server/site/library


that can be a network place you can use to upload the files without timeout errors.

Best of luck
