Add the resume feature to the SFTP Client PUT Service

The SFTP Client PUT Service is not able to resume a file that already exists on the remote sftp server. The PUT service always erase the file if it's already present. But in case of an interruption of transfer, we might want to call again the PUT service in order to resume the transfer. Not being able to resume a file can be a problem when transferring large data over a weak network.

How will this idea be used?

We have a custom BP that calls the SFTP Client PUT Service in a loop. This allows to start again the transfer in case the session is lost for whatever reason.
With the resume feature, the transfer will continue where it left off instead of restarting from the beginning.
