    When I have selected a number of files to download, and the connection drops during one of them, only the actual file being transferred at the time appears in the Resume Download list.

    There appears to be no way to continue to download the rest of the files. They are all still selected in the window, but it is not easy to know which ones have already been downloaded and which ones haven't. (Yes, I can look at the transcript, or in the target folder, but when this happens part way through transferring hundreds of files, it is a lot of work to reselect the files yet to be transferred.)

    What would be good would be for the whole transaction to appear in the Resume list, so that resuming the interrupted file would also continue with the remaining files when it was finished. (Listing them individually would probably be inadvisable as resuming them all would make them all start at the same time.)

    Thanks for the suggestion; that would be a very useful feature, and hopefully we'll be able to add it at some point. The closest thing to that currently is the Mirror Folder command, which only transfers files that haven't been transfered already.
