I'm trying to upload a large folder. Can you help?

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

I have a 2 TB account. I have a folder with subfolders that total 946 gb. I tried to upload the folder but it stopped after a day . It partially uploaded some of the files and folders but not all of them. Hard to know which ones were uploaded since there are 511 subfolders with 17,711 files According to this community, there is a 20 gbyte limit on uploads. So how do I get this rather large folder with its subfolders and files into dropbox  at one time? do I have to delete what's already uploaded and limit my folders/files to 20gb per day (which is a pain) or is there some other way to get the whole 946 gb up to dropbox (it doesn't matter how long it takes even if weeks).

thanks,

Hsilby

The 20GB upload limit applies to the Dropbox website. There is no limit when using the Dropbox app on your computer. Simply install the app and sign into your account, then move or copy the files into the Dropbox folder that gets created no your local drive. The files will sync automatically to your account online.
