Google Fail: I cannot tell Drive to prioritize uploads on desktop

I have been downloading some very large files from Drive to my computer to have a complete sync for the last couple of days. The problem with this process has been that any new file that I add to Drive on my PC is not getting uploaded. Google Drive app is completely ignoring the newly added files for upload because of the scheduled downloads.

There is no setting in Preferences where I can tell the app to prioritize uploads. Thankfully, I can throttle the traffic when I need the bandwidth. This feature was only added recently.
