Upload Files to QShare

Advances upload feature is currently not working

The Advance upload feature of QShare is currently not working due to a security update in JAVA. This is a known issue and will be corrected when the next security patch is applied.

An alternate way of uploading files to QShare is to map a network drive. This will allow you to drag and drop files from your computer to your QShare.

For step-by-step instructions see the Tutorial Mapping a Network Drive at: http://www.queensu.ca/its/qshare/tutorials/mapping-network-drive

The following instructions show how to upload files to your www directory to host a web page.
