Description (last modified by Tim Kosse)

Hi Guys,

This is a very low priority feature request / "is it possible?" ticket.

When I transfer a number of files/folders, specifically when downloading, the number of files queued changes frequently (as files are successfully downloaded and further files are discovered within folders).

Is there any chance, even as an option, to have FileZilla map out all the files & folders to be transferred (and setting the queue length to the complete number of files to be moved) prior to commencing the transfer?

This would mean that the count would be more reliable (so, as a user, I would see the count decreasing towards zero as the queued files are moved, rather than varying between X and zero as it works through each folder in turn).

As I said - very low priority, and if this option has previously been discarded for performance reasons, then that is fine, feel free to reject this ticket.

The count increases as files are added to the queue in the fastest possible manner.

You can pre-calculate it manually: Add files to queue without starting the transfers, then after it has finished queuing, start the actual transfers.

Needless to say this is a lot slower than simply starting as soon as possible with the transfers.
