How can I check how far my upload has gone?

Level 2

I have been uploading a 70GB folder from my laptop, for few days the laptop has been uploading almost 50% of the folder, at the end it stopped working and now I'm not sure how much of the upload has been done and what is missing. How can I check the number of file and folders, what happens if I upload again the folder? Does it merges the files avoiding duplications?

If you're uploading through the website, the upload will start over again from the beginning. The website was not meant to handle uploads of that size. You should be using the Dropbox client and allow it to sync the files automatically. If a sync process is interrupted with the Dropbox client, it will automatically resume when it reconnects.

OK thanks.

Do I see a progress bar while starting again or is done in the background? 

What is the maximum size for a folder?

If you are using the website it wont auto restart and you need to do it all manually to see what has uploaded and what hasnt. 

There is no max size for folders, but, uploading via the website isnt recommended for this reason.
