Can I configure FileZilla server so that it only writes the file once upload is complete?

I have a PowerShell script watching a directory for processing, so I'd prefer that the file didn't appear until the upload was complete - presumably FileZilla would write the file to a temporary directory until it was complete.

How about having your script upload and then rename the file when finished. Have your mnitor only look for specific filenames or patterns. Or upload to a temp directory and then move to the monitored directory.

How about having a trigger file added to the queue that starts further processing of your bigger file once it got uploaded?
