Disable size check for background transfers

Hello.
I have folders on server around 1Tb with about a million small files. I'm trying to download it, but size check takes a lot of time (tens of minutes). I can download it in foreground mode without size check, but in foreground mode it's going with only one connection (~2-3Mb/s). To use few connections (four for 8-10Mb/s) I need to put transfer in background mode, but in the background mode is not possible to disable size check.
Is it possible to add option to disable size check in background mode or option to use >1 connection in the foreground mode?

Re: disable size check for background transfers

There's no "size check". WinSCP just retrieves the list of files to download. As documented here, it does not add any time to the overall transfer duration:

The only difference is that the order of operations is different. So it takes longer before the first transfer actually starts. But in the end it does not matter.
