    I have a scenario where a customer needs to upload to Amazon S3 a zip of files (it will contain a folder structure too) and then extract all the files and honour the folder structure too. It’s similar to this demo but that demo doesn’t use RadCloudUpload. The problem is that the zip file may be hundreds of MBs in size and it will always be to S3 so we need to use RadCloudUpload. 

    Furthermore, as they are uploaded we need to enter the file and folder details in to a database table, and associate a few more custom fields to each file like a guid, tenantID, uploadedBy etc. Then we want to use RadFileExplorer to browse the files and custom fields similar to this demo

    Is this possible? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Chris,

    The CloudUpload can be configured to create folder structure and upload file inside different folders. But I'm not sure if it is possible to upload zip file to S3 and then to extract the archive.

    The RadFileExplorer does not support Amazon S3 out of the box. That's why you will have to implement  custom provider. There is such code library:
