7.7 Testing - Attempting to upload a directory as the dataset master - can't select the folder and have WMS respond/recognize it

Description

Same object as earlier - " 9823 Test of Appendix B Data, as part of RUcore 7.7 testing November 10, 2015" under the "SOAP 2.5 Flat Data" collection on test.

Tried to upload data, even though couldn't edit metadata. Went through the process, selected the option to upload a subdirectory from my local computer. Hit Select File, browsed to the folder, clicked on the folder, but nothing happened - didn't return the folder address to WMS.

No error messages to report, just didn't do anything. Tried multiple times, same result.

For batch upload, you specify directory (Set Directory) that contains your file or directory. You do not click on individual files. Test again. -YY

Figured out the issue - data was on the local workstation, not the server. I could still not upload a directory from my workstation.

However, I could zip the files and upload a zip file.

Would it make sense to clarify these directions on WMS to indicate that directory upload is not suported from a PC?

I have added note to WMS for local directory zip upload. -YY
