The following table contains descriptions for each of the columns:

|Status|| The stage of the upload or download process that is currently in progress.
|Elapsed||Time elapsed since initiating the upload/download in Hours:Minutes:Seconds.|
|Progress||During compression/decompression of files, this column displays the size of the file. During upload/download, it instead displays information about the percent of the job completed so far: Pending (i.e., 0%), n%, Complete (i.e., 100%).|
|Remove||Press the Remove button if you would like to remove the file from the queue and thereby cancel the upload/download.|
