An option to rename transferred files after they complete would be very useful for those who do lots of filebased video editing. If the transferred file could be uploaded with a custom file extention, and then renamed to its correct file extention when complete, would greatly improve the stability of watchfolder waiting for incoming files on servers. Simple, but very powerful. Watchfolders could be set to ignore files set to a certain filetype, leaving the files alone until Cyberduck confirms that the upload is complete.

If a user is disconnected halfway in a transfer, the receiving server assumes the transfer is complete, and the uncomplete file will continue into the system.

Cyberduck could prevent all of this, solving a workflow issue for lots of videoproduction people :)

Hope this suggestion makes sense, we would love to see it implemented!

The implementation will be dependent if the target host supports renaming files. Feature will be disabled for protocols that do not support file renaming such as Rackspace Cloudfiles.

In 968974b. This can be enabled using the following hidden preference. Use

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck queue.upload.file.temporary true

to enable.

To specify a different temporary filename pattern, use

defaults write ch.sudo.cyberduck queue.upload.file.temporary.format "'{0}-{1}'"

where {0} is the original filename and {1} is a random UUID. The default setting uses a temprary filename of filename-uuid.

An upload that is not complete, will not be renamed.
