One of the major concerns cloud storages should keep an eye on is how to provide users with the easiest way to upload files. In sober fact, uploading and downloading are two sides of a coin, being essential operations one can conduct and, furthermore, basic ones to continue working in storage afterwards. Reasonably, everything starts with data upload to DepositStorage, and only then it can be shared, downloaded, renamed, copied, etc.
As the account is created, file upload is probably the first thing you can do. In order to manage a storage, user should have something in it, shouldn’t he? In this context, DepositStorage has already presented several ways to export files into the service, and some are to come down the road.
Explore your interface options
Web-interface is particularly the first tool you have at hand when willing to upload to DepositStorage from the PC. No matter what browser you’re exercising, you can always start upload to DepositStorage by pressing the very first button in account’s menu bar. In addition, you can enter Web tab in Upload logs, where it is possible to view the uploading process and learn about file’s ultimate location, its size and upload date.
Upload to DepositStorage from away
In case you’d like to upload files from any other source, Remote upload tool is at your disposal. The corresponding action might be found in the menu bar of your account as well. If pressing the button, a popup window appears instantly, where you can insert an URL of necessary source and login details if they’re required. In Remote tab you can check on your uploads performed from remote sources and learn their basic details.
How to conduct data upload using FTP?
Upload via FTP servers retains its advantage in case of Internet disconnection or any other failure; in practice, the process of upload resumes, as the problem is fixed. DepositStorage provides a wide choice of FTP servers, which require prior downloading of FTP-clients. And then just follow the steps, marked in our FTP upload manual (it is maintained in popup dialog after applying to FTP button in the menu bar). The details of uploads via FTP servers are specified in the like-named tab of Upload Logs.
