I suggest that you take a look at the following help article
that shows a possible approach to this problem. I also have some good news for you. Together with the Q2 release we will release updated upload control that will be able to validate the size of the files entirely on the client, without the need of RadProgressArea/RadProgressManager. The Q2 release is scheduled for the middle of July. Stay tuned!
