Does the SFTP component provide the ability to return a checksum or crc check hash for a remote file? For example, If I download a remote file to a local path, I want to check if the file was downloaded successfully. I could compare the file lengths, however, this does not gaurantee that the bytes weren't download in the wrong order. Therefore, It would be great if you could do a crc or check sum on the remote file and the local file to ensure both match on a byte level. Is this functionality built into the component already? For example, if I call the library synchronize directory methods, does this happen within this method? Can I do this manually?
