    Hi Team,

    Am using kendo directory upload, it works in chrome browser but not in IE. 
    either am looking for kendo drag and drop or in RAD - explorer to make it work in IE.

    Hello Shankar,

    Uploading directories requires two things:

    • that the <input type="file" /> that is actually used for the file selection receives an attribute that tells the browser to handle it differently - that is, to upload folders and not standalone files
    • that the browser supports this attribute and the associated features pertaining to folder uploads (this is necessary for dragging folders and not just selecting them from the browser's dialog)

    While Kendo Upload could set the attribute, IE11 does not support folder uploads and does not use this attribute, nor does it offer the necessary data in the drop event so that we could capture the files. Thus, folder uploads are impossible under IE. At the moment, to the best of my knowledge, only Chrome, Firefox and Edge offer this feature.
