Return of option: transfer each file (and folder!!) individually on [in] background by default

Hard to keep track of group transfers when they (the files)'re not listed in the queue.
seeing c:/files/group1 as the source is insufficient for large transfer with many files / folders, especially if you need to cancel one in the MIDDLE.
c:/files/group1/a-e
c:/files/group1/f-j
c:/files/group1/k-o
... much better option (for us who select it).

Disappeared between 5.8.3 and 5.21.5

Thanks for your feedback.
That option was superseded by Use multiple connections for single transfer:
Bug 875 – Allow background transfer operations to use multiple connections
The previous option cannot return as such. But management of the individual files can definitely be improved, if there's enough demand. We will see.

:(

I'm transferring 14 TiB (16TB) between multiple machines in a network.

Because of this missing option, I now have to revert to version 4.1.3 (with all the bugs that come with it, which also means: some files will be obliterated (per bug #2132).

I think we should have control over transfers, including being able to SEE what's going on ....
