Uploading Through the Web Interface


Depending on your device and file sizes, Egnyte provides several easy methods to upload files. Click the links below to jump to specific instructions, or watch the help video. Please note that these file size limits are technical limits: your plan may have a lower file size upload limit.

Uploading Files

To upload files to Egnyte, either "drag and drop" them into the browser or select and upload them using the “Browse for Files” button.

Drag and Drop

You can drag and drop as many files as you want as long as each one is less than 25 GB, but each browser is slightly different.

  • Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge allow you to drag and drop files and folders
  • Safari allows you to drag and drop files starting with version 6
  • Internet Explorer allows you to drag and drop files starting with version 10

Note that uploading empty folders is not supported via drag and drop. For migrating empty folder structures, use Cloud Migration Manager or FTP. 


Browse for files

“Browse for Files” is another easy way to upload files smaller than 25 GB and will work on all browsers.  Just click on the Upload button and then choose “Choose Files”; you’ll be able to select one or more files for upload from your desktop.



Uploading Folders

Dragging and Dropping

If you are running Chrome, Firefox, or Microsoft Edge you can drag and drop folders directly into the Web UI.

Desktop Apps

Another efficient way to upload folders to the cloud is to use either Desktop Sync or Egnyte Drive.  

Cloud Migration Manager

Upload amounts of files, folders, and folder permissions from your on-premises share to your Egnyte domain with Cloud Migration Manager.
