|
| as far as I can see, the answer is a definite "no".
|
| Full file caching is a fundamental design choice. The unique properties
| of Coda are due to that design. Use another file system if huge files
| are important - but then forget disconnected operation and optimistic
| replication.

Ok, but something like the following scenario:
Start downloading the file
As X bytes have arived allow access to them
Continue downloading in the backgroun until the wole file get cached
Would it be possible?

|
| Coda upgrade can help. Test with 6.0.6.
