Please provide the detailed information about the problem. Do you see any error message?

If not, I guess it is the very famous FTP problem - you need to use Passive FTP instead of Active FTP. Most routers block Active FTP. Passive FTP is rarely blocked.

You need to use a router that supports Active FTP, or you can use a different FTP client. Unfortunately, Microsoft command-line FTP client does not support Passive FTP. You need to use a GNU version FTP client, or any GUI-based FTP client, such as FileZilla.

Alternatively, you can use DriveHQ FileManager for automatic folder synchronization, or use our WebDAV drive mapping service, then use DOS command to copy files directly.

When I log on to Drive HQ, I no longer receive the option of Batch Upload when uploading files to drive hq, meaning each file has to be uploaded individually which is much more time consuming than the batch upload previously available.  The tab that said "Batch Upload" now says "Web Upload".  Do you know why, and how I can get "batch upload" back?

 Thanks for reaching out to us Daphne, 

It seems that there might be some confusion with the basic web based upload under the My Storage area, as we have recently made some updates with the interface here. Rest assured, batch upload is still absolutely possible. Previously, we had two options for basic upload and batch upload. Compared to what you currently see within the upload option, which is a basic 'web upload' option. The web upload is essentially the same as the batch upload; this will allos you to click on 'add files', and then select ALL of the files within your machine that you want to upload to DriveHQ.

There is definitely no requirement to upload these one at a time. If you feel that you are seeing something contrary to what was explained above, please send us the steps to duplicate what you are experiencing. You can also feel free to reach out to us at support@drivehq.com if you would like to discuss this a bit more comprehensively.
