I requested that a folder be uploaded to a bucket
from my local machine.  The folder contains more
than 10 directories, but only 3 directories were
partially uploaded.

I deleted the bucket and tried several more times,
each with the same result.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Gregory,

Google Cloud Storage won't upload the folders if these are empty, please check if the folders are empty. 

Secondly,  there is a maximum size limit of 5 TiB for uploads. 

If you have Cloud SDK set up, you can try using the gsutil -m cp .. command to transfer the files to GCS bucket.

Perhaps associated with this... I am trying to UPLOAD many individual files within a folder to the cloud.
They are smaller kmz files used in a Superoverlay for Google Earth.
Whether I try to upload a folder of them, or create the folder then upload the files, I almost always get an "Aw Snap!"  and it times out, or I keep getting "Wait or Exit" dialogs.
So, is there a limit to uploading?
