No upload to subsites - 404 error


Hello, i tried to upload files to a SharePoint subsite but it doesn't work. Every time i get an 404 exception (not found). Other uploads to the same server worked for me. Only document libraries on subsites seem to be not supported.

Do you need forther Information? A solution would be great.

Thank you!

I think the problem is in the tree view selector not returning the correct information for nested subsites.

In the inital address enter;

http://test/sites/company/operations/it instead of http://test/sites/company i.e. the address of the subsite rather than the site collection.

You can then select the document library and import just fine.

If i load the site collection into the tree view selector i can see the structure of the subsite. Choosing the library seems to be fine.
But when i enter the url of the subsite directly and click "Load" i'm just getting a SiteAndListTreeLoader:Exception .. (404) not found..

I'm using Office 365 with a SharePoint 2013 site.

This works for me. Check your url, make sure you are not including the page name or something of that nature.

Uploading to OFFICE365 E3 account was having the same problem with subsite uploads but here is what worked for me. This is not perfect and doesn't seem like it is working but it is.
Load/browse to and select the correct subsite that you want to upload to in the Destination Library Box.
After you have selected what you want click on the Destination Web URL (Relative) box and delete out the full path changing it back to / This is the only modification that I made.
The import will throw an error and act like it is not working when in fact it is working. The exact error that I get is:
ImportRow:C:\Folder\filename.pdf:ExceptionThe URL 'subsite/folder subfolder/filename.pdf' is invalid. It may refer to a nonexistent file or folder, or refer to a valid file or folder that is not in the current Web.
