How to push multiple files to OneDrive for Business
Posted on 2015-01-11
I am testing OneDrive for Business before deploying it to 70 users in an Office 365 migration for their Documents folders. I expected that when I setup the app to sync that the files on my PC would upload to the cloud space automatically. That is not happening. I need to get lots of files and folders TO the OneDrive Office 365 free terabyte cloud space (really a SharePoint site) from my PC (and eventually all the users' PC's to their own OneDrives). Problem is that I can only put one file in the cloud at a time, and folder copying is not allowed. Interestingly, OneDrive created all the FOLDERS in the cloud on its own, and SAYS that is it syncing; I see a count of files that is slowly decreasing; but all of the cloud folders are empty.
How is this supposed to work?
The application has been syncing for days; is this just a timing issue?
How do people get thousands of files and folders to the cloud drive in batches, or maybe even in one upload per user?
Do files appear only show up in the cloud only after they are changed on the PC?
