During a download FlashFXP no longer updates the file size in the local browser window, we determined that constantly updating the file size adds unnecessary disk access and cpu overhead.

In order for the Windows OS/Shell to see the updated size; the file must be flushed to disk forcing the OS to write the data to the storage device. This can also create a botteneck limiting the maximum throughput speed by as much as 50%.
