Comment (by Wstsandmore):

 I made a very interesting observation, which could help you programmers
 probably a lot :

 After uploading a file the Cyberduck File Browser (at least in Macinsosh )
 does reload.
 First I thought that this is a convenient feature to show the user the
 updated state,
 but I now realized that Cyberduck also seems to depend on the new
 recalculated filesize,
 because if I upload a large file into a subfolder where a reload of the
 filemanager does not show the new filesize, and then move the entire
 folder straight away to another location (as I often do with large files
 in order to prevent people from downloading partially uploaded stuff ),
 the filesize in that moved folder keeps being zero, because it was never
 updated by Cyberduck to be larger now.

 This also creates really strange problems when uploading multiple folders
 including large files:
 The first uploaded files are not registered as uploaded because a refresh
 of the filebrowser and therewith filecalculation was not made, so if the
 connection is reset once daily by the ISP, Cyberduck reloads the multiple
 task, but does not see the files already uploaded and starts them again
 from the beginning.
 The only way to prevent this is to open the folder of the file currently
 uploaded so that it refreshes on completion. But this only works on single
 folder uploads, because multiple tasks only refresh at the very end.
