File listing should be off by default in push/pull

I don’t use Local to push/pull the files in my site. I prefer to use sftp for that.

However, when I push/pull my sites, Local automatically begins generating a list of all the files in my site. That’s a ton of nested directories and file lists, and it takes a long time (I just counted 15 seconds on my last test before the list was generated.)

Furthermore, if there is a specific file I want to push/pull, it is very difficult to locate it.

Can the folks who make this amazing piece of software make it even better by having “Include Files” be an opt-in checkbox, like “Include Database” currently is? So that if I want to push/pull files, I check that box, and only then does Local begin generating the list.

Thanks for taking the time to consider this request.
