Upload and save files to Box


This is a brief guide to uploading files to Box. There are different methods available depending on if you are using the Box website or Box Drive. 

Uploading a file using Box Drive

If you want to upload a file to Box Drive, open your Box Drive folder and the folder you want to drag the files from, drag and drop your required files into Box Drive.

Saving a file to Box Drive?

To save a file to a Box folder choose ‘Save As’ and select Box. The Box folders you have recently used will appear at the top of the screen. You can save directly to those folders or browse Box. If you chose to Browse Box and the file you want isn’t listed, you can click on the home button which will take you to the All files area. From there you can drill down into folders as required.
