How to know what files are being synced?

Helpful | Level 5

it says "2 files being synced X minutes left" or something to that effect.  And there's "notifications" and "recent files" but no indication of what's being worked on.

Any files currently syncing will have the blue Syncing icon overlay on them. There is no list of currently syncing files.

It would be immensely helpful to know which files are currently being synced, especially when there are a large number for data files.

The files are broken up into 4 MB chunks (as they are called), indexed or categorized, then uploaded to the servers. So any files having the blue syncing icon are in fact sycning, or being prepared to sync. They are also uploaded smallest to largest.
