Upload Multiple Files to 1&1 Online Storage

Learn how to upload multiple files at once to your 1&1 Online Storage.

Uploading of single files to 1&1 Online Storage is easiest through the Upload File(s) selection in the File menu of 1&1 Online Storage. For uploading multiple files, this method becomes inconvenient. It is therefore best to use the Multi Uploader.

Please note:
Files for upload may not exceed 1GB in size.
