- Create a remote connection from a local project to a web site
- Create a local folder and place a file in it. Make sure the folder does not exist on the server
- Expand the connections node in project explorer, or the file transfer editor between the local and remote sites. Drag the folder from the local project to the remote view. Only the top-level folder is copied, not the interior file.
If you instead use the upload arrow in either the Project Explorer or the File Transfer view, the complete contents are copied.
