If you have made changes to a local file and you want to save the updated file to the FileCloud Server for backup and sharing, you can upload a file. 

In the FileCloud App, you can choose a file from the following locations:

  • Photo library
  • Video Library
  • App Download Folder
  • Filesystem


The FileCloud app uploads files and folders in background.

You can continue working while upload is in progress.

However, the FileCloud app must be in foreground and you should not switch to a different server until the upload is completed. 

What do you want to do?


(lightbulb) When uploading a file, you will choose where the file should be uploaded first. Then you can select the file you want to upload.

To upload a folder, select all files in a folder.


To upload a file:

1. Open the FileCloud app.

2. Navigate to the folder where you want to save it on the server.

(lightbulb) Remember that the folder structure in the FileCloud App is the same as what is on the server in your My Files folder.

3. In the bottom right corner, select the folder menu icon (), and then select Upload to Folder.

4. Select where you want to navigate to locate the file to upload:

  • Photo library
  • Video Library
  • App Download Folder
  • Filesystem


5. Select the files to be uploaded.  

The uploading will be done in background.

You can continue working while upload is in progress. However:

  • The FileCloud app must be in foreground
  • You should not switch to a different server until the upload is completed

To check status of upload:

  1. In the FileCloud app, swipe in from the left side of the screen.
  2. Select the Queue option.

Please note the following restrictions when uploading files to FileCloud:

  • Files with the same name:
    • If you upload a file with the same name and the same case as another file in the same folder, it overwrites the file.
    • If you upload a file with the same name but a different case than another file in the same folder, you cannot upload the file and the File Operations window displays a file name conflict message.
    • If you upload files with the same name but different file extensions, like myfile.doc and myfile.docx, they are treated as different files.
  • FileCloud cannot upload files with leading spaces in the filename.
  • By default, files with the extensions php, php5, phar, and phtml cannot be uploaded into FileCloud.
