    Upload a folder to Skydrive using the ModernUI App


    Is it possible to upload a whole folder to the Skydrive using the Skydrive Modern UI App?

    I din't see a way.

    I looked at it.
    I opened a folder & had to select everything at once.

    That is, you can select everything by clicking on each item & highlight them ALL & click add to skydrive.

    You don't have to add them one by one.

    Or you could ZIP a folder & upload the .zip file.

    You don't have to click on on each item & highlight them ALL. Just click on Select All

    My mistake.
    If it was a snake, it would have bitten me.

    Thanks for pointing it out.

    EDIT-- I had one selected & saw "Clear Selection", Select All was hidden.

    I don't think SkyDrive will allow you to select & upload a whole folder, Just File(s). However, I find it faster to upload File(s) to SkyDrive by using the browser to open: SkyDrive.com and login into your account then you can use Drag & Drop

    EDIT:
    I am not sure if it is a limitation on free SkyDrive account but I know there's a limit that you can only upload 100MB Max at a time unless you have a premium account.
