In large organisations large amount of documents have to be uploaded into document libraries. This can be a time consuming task especially if the hierarchy has to be maintained in folders in the document library as well.
A quick fix is to map a drive to your sharepoint site from Windows Explorer. Simply choose Tools, Map Network Drive; choose a letter; and in the Folder field, paste in the full http://….. address for your sharepoint site. Click the “reconnect at logon” option and you’ll always have a drive mapped to sharepoint!
