True, for my flash drives, as well thumbnails are generated :/  ...jepp,
thumbnail settings could possibly profit from your planned changes :)

Sounds like a good idea to me. I guess if there are multiple hdds/ssds, it
would be ok to have queued file-transfer

Promising !, thanks alot ! 

In case you want to as well check for "same device id", we probably would need
an additional enum value .. e.g:
Transfer files in parallel:  [ Always | only for local files | only for local
files if source device matches target device | Never ]
... hope that text would not be too long.
