About uploading and importing data files and folders

This page contains:

You can upload single files, multiple files, and folders from your desktop and import single or multiple files from URL. Once imported, you can use the data files for analyses in the Discovery Environment and manage the data outside of the Discovery Environment using other tools, as well as upload files directly using iCommands. The method you use depends on the size and number of your data files, as well as your personal preferences.

You also can import test data files from the app's documentation page and download files and folders to your computer.

Uploading data files from your desktop

You can upload files from your desktop using two different methods:

  • Bulk upload allows you to upload multiple files of up to 4.0 GB. Uses the iDrop Lite Java applet.
  • Simple upload allows you to upload up to four files with a total of 1.9 GB of data.

You also can import files from URL. This is useful for files that are larger than 3-4 GB or not on your computer.

Doing a bulk upload from desktop

This method allows you to upload multiple files that contain up to 4 GB each and requires installation of the iDrop Lite Java applet. To learn more about downloading and using the Java iDrop desktop applet, see Using the iDrop Desktop and iDrop Lite Java applets. We recommend using Java version 6 (version 6 update x).
