This should actually be apparent on the hubackup UI, although could use 
some improvements as when the file name is too long it will get cut to 
the right of the text label used to show which file is being worked on 
at a given moment.

I have planned for this since I begun implementing hubackup - but I 
decided to drop it out since making a user wait for scanning the source 
location and it's sub folders seems just unfair, would you be willing to 
sacrifice the time that would be required in order to scan the source 
path (remember it might be even your entire home) just to be able to see 
how many files are left?
