I have a data table where you can click to expand upon the row. Two out of my four columns have data that can be expanded upon if the column is set to enabled. If disabled, there is no additional data as you can see in the image here. enter image description here

I have a few questions regarding this behavior.

  1. Should each download/upload have a separate chevron? If so, should both expand upon a single click, or should the user have to click each one individually to view both columns? (Might be difficult to design a usable table with this function)
  2. Should the expanded row be left aligned for readability, or stay where it is so that it correlates with the main "download" column?
  3. Should I show the empty spaces when the main column is disabled (ex: upload column in image above)?
