upload of file stopped uploading

Level 2

I started uploading a large folder containing 8000 files last night and all was going well when I went to bed but when the upload stopped during the night and won't start automatically now in the morning. Any suggestions?

I think it might be better to upload in manageable batches because if there is anything wrong with even one of those files, it affects the rest of the upload and can be a pain to go back and identify where things went wrong. I've had problems if there's been a live picture or video within a massive file of normal images. Am sure others may have better answers coming soon.

Dont do it via the website is the simplest answer as you now need to manually work out what has and hasnt uploaded and then upload the rest. 

The best thing to do is use www.dropbox.com/downloading to download the desktop client, install it and then put everything you want uploaded inside the newly created Dropbox folder.
