To upload a file or folder from your system - Select File Upload or Folder Upload from the dropdown menu. Select the file/folder to upload and click Open (for Mac). Alternatively, you can drag and drop the file/folder from your computer to upload.

You can upload files with the formats .docx, .pptx, .xlsx, etc., and preview them in Zoho WorkDrive. To edit these files, you need to convert them to Zoho WorkDrive's format.
