Hey,

could it be possible that this is “by design” and you generally can’t create empty folders through drag an drop in a browser?


#3

@tom42, I’m not so sure. I have a folder structure with lots of empty folders (perhaps 100+) inside which I intend to drag and drop on to the browser. Creating each folder manually? That would take ages!


#4

Hey,

maybe you can use the ownCloud sync client for this task?


#5

I did think of doing that as an alternative. But I wanted to keep that as a last resort - The owncloud client is better suited when you need to sync your files on a regular basis.

Nevertheless, I also attempted to create an empty folder on the local storage in owncloud as opposed to the external storage (S3) only to run into the same issue again.


#6

Hey,

which seems to me that this shows that this is the current expected behavior. I don’t think that there is that much you can do here from user side besides using the sync client as advised. :confused:

Besides the above i did a search like: https://github.com/owncloud/core/search?q=drag+drop+folder&type=Issues and found an existing issue at the ownCloud bugtracker:


#8

Hi, I have the same issue on CentOS 7 x64 - Fresh install - Comodo SSL - [ownCloud ] 10.0.10 (stable). This problem hinders users. When is it schedule to be resolved?.
Thanks.


#9

Hey,

i think most of the readers don’t have much or any knowledge about the schedules of the development team. :slightly_frowning_face:

But maybe you can find some schedules attached to the issue i had linked above?
