How Do I Manage Files In Datto Drive?


File Creation / Upload

Click on the + icon to access file creation and upload commands, as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1 - File Creation menu

  • Upload - Click here to get an upload file dialog box.
  • Text file - Click here to create a text file.
  • Folder - Click here to create a folder.


To navigate through the files and folders in Datto Drive, click on the file/folder name, not the icon. Clicking the icon selects the file but does not open it.

Figure 2 - Open folder / file


The default view is List view. In this view, you can sort the columns by Name, Size, and Modified time.

Notice that you have a folder called Vacation and a text file called Lorem.

To switch to Gallery view, click on the tiles icon, as shown above. You will then see thumbnails of your photos, but you will not see the text file or the folder.

To get back to List view, click on the List icon in the upper right.
