try using google chrome. It seems it doesnt have as many issues with workspaces as other browsers. A lot of people have had this problem and its usually fixed when they try using chrome

Had the same issue with Firefox. I had to open the downloaded image folder itself and select all the images files and drag and drop those into workspace. They uploaded fine when I did that and then I made a img folder in workspace and put them all in that.

Im having the same problem and im in chrome, I did the thing that the guys above me said and it didnt work. ._.

Thanks, I got the images to download in chrome but now I am getting an error when trying to save my work!

July 2015 - When I dragged & dropped per the instructional I encountered the never-ending spinning wheel of doom. I stubbornly re-tried that a few times, then turned to Google. What I found did work: I went to File -> Upload File on the workbench. I selected the files for download the good old fashioned way. Worked like a charm.

I have had success uploading images and text files to TreeHouse Workspaces, using Firefox 43.x and Windows XP. Here's the secret!

Open your Workspace, and open the Explorer window where your files are located. Click-and-hold your file and drag it to the extreme left and bottom of your Workspace panel. If you look carefully, the tooltip changes to a little square with a + symbol next to it. Anywhere else, it's just a square. Drop your file where you see the plus. Your file lands in the root folder, but you can move it to the desired Workspace folder after it's uploaded.

So the basic problem is that it is not obvious there is a drop target in the lower-left part of the gray Workspace panel. Actually, Joe Steele, one of the Workspaces developers, pointed this out in one of the discussion groups, but did not emphasize it. I think it might help if the developers made that target area a little more obvious, with a line or with a slight shading. But upload itself works fine.

Take care all!
