Uploading Files To Box

Upload to Box

There are several ways to upload files and folders to Box.


Drag and Drop

Drag files from your desktop to the files page in Box. Your files will be uploaded and will appear in the folder where you dropped them. Dragging and dropping entire folders is only supported in Chrome. For other browsers, use the File Browser (see below)

File Browser

  • Click the Upload button in the upper-right corner.



  • Select Files or Folders, depending on what you'd like to upload
  • Select the file(s) or folder you'd like to upload.
  • You can select multiple files for upload by holding the Command or Control key (Mac or Windows, respectively) while selecting files. However, you can only select one folder at a time for upload.
  • Click Open or Upload


You can upload via email, to learn how click here.
