How many files can be uploaded to a Document Library at a time?

It depends which 'uploader' you are using. Microsoft has changed this at some stage with a service pack.

The 'drag and drop' uploader maxes out at 100 files (without giving a decent message). The 'Treeview' based uploader does not have a limit I believe, but has other annoying limitations.

it also depends if you are uploading manually, or through another program (api)

Depend on Web application that you set Maximum Upload Size. You can find this settings at Central Administration > Application Management > Web Application > General Settings > General Settings.

I don't think he was asking about the size, just the number of files. – Muhimbi Jun 4 '11 at 6:45
