Downloa files already while listing folders

If you download a lot of data at once it takes forever to list all folders before starting to download them. It would be much better if files are already downloaded while the folders are listed.

I'd even considered going with the system of FlashFXP and FileZilla by just downloading the files and jumping into folders recursively instead of making a list of files and folders.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

In the end it will take the same amount of time to complete the transfer but listing in advance gives the advantage that we can give proper progress information.

Listing takes (when I make a full backup of my 370MB of files on the FTP) like 2-3 minutes. If I have to resume it starts listing everything again. This is annoying and definitely slower than instantly starting.
