Topic "How to deal with sites that has automatic FTP processing"

I'm uploading images and videos to stock agencies. Most of these FTP's are monitoring the activity so when a file is finished uploading (very badly guessed by no more file-size change after a timeout), it's taken and it's automatically processed.
When the internet connection between me and the agency has issues, the result is very ugly:
- the first fragments of the file is uploaded several times (even 20-30 times)
- incomplete uploads due to timeouts.

I can't find a solution to monitor the upload activity with winscp. I would left the PC to upload files for several hours, obviously there is no way to watch the uploading process.
I can't stop or cancel the remaining uploads. In order to retain the uploaded file order, I need to cancel the other files in the queue, but there is no way. I only have to close winscp, start over quickly and delete the file fragment before the agency's server takes it away.

Several features may be extremely handy:
- LOG window with a list of files and their status (partially/completely uploaded or bytes here-bytes @FTP)
- option to pause the queue
- option to cancel queued files (Although currently I can press Del to remove a file, until I Del 100+ files, several more queued files start to upload, so it's too slow and inappropriate)

You can see this in WinSCP background transfer queue list. Recent versions of WinSCP can keep list of completed transfers.
See

There's Suspend All command. And Process Queue option. The latter does not stop ongoing transfers, but can prevent new transfers from starting.

This is transfer here:

I hope to implement this into the next major release.
