    Hi, I have been trying to find an alternative for Google Drive to upload my group's project faster, so everyone work on it. When I uploaded the last version of the Unity project in Google Drive, it took by 7 hours to upload. I even tried to collaborate the project with my group and none of the people in the group cannot get everything that I have. The project is due by next Monday, which I hope to find another alternative to upload the project faster. The project that I am working with my group is the 3D Game Kit, which we are assigned to create a dungeon level.

    I recently looked into GitHub, and I attempted to drag the entire project folder into the upload files section. Then, I got this: "Yowza, that’s a lot of files. Try again with fewer than 100 files." Next, I tried to drag the compressed folder of the project. Then, I got this: "Yowza, that’s a big file. Try again with a file smaller than 25MB."

    The project folder that I have when it is compressed with eveything that I have so far is 5,651,876 KB. The folder has the Library, Packages, Project Settings, and the Assets Folders with the 3D Game Kit. In the assets folder, it has the materials that are used, .png files for model textures and level art assets, and .fbx files for the models that I am using in this project.

    If anyone knows how to upload a Unity Project into Github that is more than 100 files and more than 25MB, please let me know as soon as possible. If Github does not work, what other websites or applications can I try to upload the project faster?

    There’s no need to upload that much to GitHub. I only ever upload Assets folder, Project Settings folder, and the packages manifest file. The other things Unity will rebuild automatically if they're missing (which includes the library folder).

    I tried to upload only the assets folder, but I it says "Yowza, that’s a lot of files. Try again with fewer than 100 files." Is there a way that I can upload more than 100 files? I am also trying to use the GitHub plugin for Unity, but it is not successfully uploading into my repository. I have version Unity 2018.1.0f2, what should I do?
