Hi

// upload file from client and store (or append) in server

procedure TForm1.IdFTPServer1StoreFile(ASender: TIdFTPServerThread;
  const AFileName: String; AAppend: Boolean; var VStream: TStream);
begin
  ListBox1.Items.Add('Store: ' + ASender.Username + ' - ' + AFileName);
  if AAppend and FileExists(AFileName) then
    begin
    VStream := TFileStream.Create(AFileName,fmOpenReadWrite);
    end
  else
    VStream := TFileStream.Create(AFileName,fmCreate);
end;


// download file from server to client
procedure TForm1.IdFTPServer1RetrieveFile(ASender: TIdFTPServerThread;
  const AFileName: String; var VStream: TStream);
begin
  ListBox1.Items.Add('Retrieve: ' + ASender.Username + ' - ' + AFileName);
  VStream := TFileStream.Create(AFileName,fmOpenRead + fmShareDenyWrite);
end;

Yes.
There is no information on server side at what position append. It is always appended at the end of currently stored file. It is the responsibility of client to send chunks in proper order.
