You did not say what operating system you are using.
If Rev only solution, try using one of the following or both approaches:
if there is a file (path and filename) ..dnld began
if there is a file (url binary:/path and filename) .. upload began
set the defaultfolder to (path)
put the detailed files into fileList
--check item 5 of the line of the file you want to track for size change.
Perhaps getting the file size on the ftp server would allow size check
A different approach is to set the log field of the process and monitor the
messages posted there.
use libUrlSetLogField, making careful note of the syntax required
<you may need to check the syntax since I cannot break in to my Rev which is
running a critical program at the moment>
