    How do I upload folder to OneDrive Without Repeating Files already Uploaded?


    I have a folder with 95k files 35Gb which I tried to upload earlier today. It took all day to upload half of it, then it froze.


    I want to upload the rest, but I'm afraid it might overwrite the ones already there and waste more time. How do I make sure it only uploads the ones that are not there?

    :)
     

  2. How best to get 150 GB uploaded to OneDrive.

    I was in a similar situation. This method worked for me but the caveat is you need sufficient hard drive space.

    1. Setup the files/folders in a folder (not onedrive) lets call it temp for uploading. Break them into groups of files that make sense and you can work with easily. Setup a second folder, lets call that completed uploads
    2. Setup the onedrive client to sync the local onedrive folder to the cloud
    3. Copy a small group of the files from the temp folder into the onedrive folder
    4. Monitor onedrive it should upload over time in the background
    5. Once uploaded move the completed files from the temp folder into the completed folder
    6. Repeat these steps
    7. Once everything has gradually moved into onedrive delete the temp and completed folders that are local on your hard drive, leaving the migrated files in the onedrive folder (and synced).

    Depending on your network and internet connection speeds this can take a while but is a method you can just leave doing its thing.
