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?

Thanks

Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment.

We would like to eventually add support for using custom virtual file systems to our libraries, but we are currently busy with other features.
