Enable TEAM to create subfolder structure when copying existing subfolders and files

For existing projects that we want to start using TEAM, we already have existing subfolders within our standard folder structure.  When we copying these subfolders into TEAM, it only copies the files so it's not organized and cannot find things.  With SharePoint when we copy a folder that has a subfolder (or multiple layers of subfolders with files in each), it copies this folder structure into TEAM.

    Agree we should support this method of uploading, especially for migrating exiting projects to Team.

    A great example we have is say we have the same pdf under multiple subfolders (permits.pdf).  Since it won't create the subfolder structure, we get errors with duplicate file names and can't upload both of them unless we go and rename them all.

    This is now 8 months old.  What is the update on this?

    Is there any progress on this?  I am not at the 3 hour mark trying to copy files to TEAM from an existing Project because I have to create each subfolder then copy then repeat.  It's been 9 months since the last comment.
