Pausing an upload on my computer - not using the desk app

Pausing an upload on my computer - not using the desk app

I think it would be a really lovely and helpful feature to be ale to pause uploads of large folders of files. I don't use the Desktop app on my laptop as it's still frustrating to me and my PC and laptop are curerntly still slow and lacking in space. Would be especially helpful if I maybe quickly need the external I'm uploading from for something else, to be able to pause, unplug, do what I need to, plug back in and resume, Mosty, I need it for the planned power blackouts my country is experiencing. They are at least scheduled. So if I could pause an upload for until after the internet returns, it would be great. Else I have to start the process over.
