Is it possible to use SFTP Bulk Transfer to upload files from memory/ temporary files to avoid excessive file locks?

I have been using SFTP bulk transfer to upload files to our server from remote locations.

Some of these files take some time to upload from locations with poor internet connection and this is causing some problems with other software that requires write access to the same files.

I don't fancy copying entire folders to temporary locations and I could rewrite and just use individual file transfers from memory myself but I was hoping you may have a more elegant solution so that I can keep using bulk transfer but not lock the files while uploading?

Unfortunately, this is not possible with current version.

However, it can be done very easy using Virtual File System, which we already have implemented, but not for SFTP component. It seems to be easy to add support for this into SFTP as well. So, I will add VFS functionality into SFTP and I will send you link to beta version and sample code ASAP.
