So working with a user on Office 365 SharePoint and looking at uploading several folders of information to a document library.

Creating the document library, yep thats fine. Tried to create a folder? Oooo… There’s no New Folder option. Ok, lets try Windows Explorer View then… Oooo… No Windows Explorer View.

Agh… How to we upload the folders then?

Step in SharePoint Workspace 2010!

Here’s the solution.

Fire up SharePoint Workspace 2010, go NEW and create a new connection to your Office 365 SharePoint site.

Sync up.

Now drag the folders into the relevant document library.

Sync Up again – aha ! Problem solved.
