make files available immediately during transfer

when you're downloading a group of files, none of the files become available until all of them are transferred. for example, if i'm downloading five 10meg files, i can't access the first file until all 50 megs have downloaded... this seems kind of silly, especially on a slower link

i haven't tested this, but it seems that if the program crashes before all the files are completed, then you might lose all the files.

so i propose that a file should be immediately available once it has completed downloading, even if its part of a larger group download.

thanks.

Re: make files available immediately during transfer

I suppose that you use drag&drop. When you use drag&drop, files are first downloaded to temporary directory. Only after transfer finishes, thay are moved to target directory.
