    Not tried on google drive but on dropbox i just select the folder and choose copy and paste.

    Just cut and paste the folder into the Google Drive folder on your PC.

    If you're accessing Google Drive via an URL (https://drive.google.com) rather than an app, just select :

    New>Folder Upload
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

    on the side the file box is empty and it says name of file so l dont know if this should be filled in.
    So l cannot upload the folder so l double click onto the folder and it opens it up and l see all my pictures in the folder, it will let me upload one at a time but it would take a long time this way..
    l just want to upload the whole folder somehow

    Stingray - you need to do the following three things..
    1. copy (or cut&paste) the folder or file(s) into the Google Drive folder
    2. ensure that the "Google Drive" software is running on your PC (either start it manually, or set it to autostart at Windows start time).
    3.ensure you have an active internet connection.

    ... if you have checked these 3 points, and it's still not working then please come back.

    Select folder or file, Right click, Select Copy
    Open Google drive folder, Right click, Paste.

    You can also drag and drop a file from one folder to the other, by holding down on left click.
