Copying Files To Folder:

There are two ways you can copy files to a folder:

  1. Copying using the search bar
  2. Copying by manual selection

Copying using the Search Bar:

Within the search results view of your desired source, click on the three dots to open the search results action menu:

Next, select the option Copy results to folder:

The next window gives you a few options on where to copy the files. You can copy files to My sources, Shared with me, Workspaces

Once you make your selection you can scroll through any existing subfolders within the category, Once you make your selection click Copy here to complete.

After you confirm the copy you will get a notice at the bottom of the page that the copy has started.

Note: While the copy is in progress do not make modifications to the source itself (such as deleting it) or making changes to the folder being copied to. This can cause a disruption in the copy process and will result in errors.

If you click into the folder being copied to you will start to see files populating the folder. Refreshing the browser and seeing the total number of files increasing in that folder will inform you of its progress towards completion.

Copying by manual selection:

Navigate to a source, search result, or folder you would like to copy files from. From there, hover over the file icons until a blank check box appears. You can then manually select the files you want to copy.

Once you have selected the desired files, select the three dots on the right-hand side > then select "Copy selected to...".

The next window gives you a few options on where to copy the files. You can copy files to My sources, Shared with me, Workspaces.

Once you have selected where you would like to copy the files, you then have the option to add the files to an existing folder or create a new folder to copy over the files. Click "Copy here" to save your selection.

After you confirm the copy you will get a notice at the bottom of the page that the copy has started and once the copying is completed.

When you save the name, you will see the new folder appear in the workspace.
