#1033 closed Bug report

File list is limited?

hi there,

using filezilla client 2.2.17a I encountered the following:
if you browse an ftp directory with more than 5000
files in it you will get a file list back that stops
after 4998 files. the rest of the files will be ignored
and thus are not accessible for the user.

in my case i tried browsing a directory with 30000
files in it and I found ths limitation quite irritating..

I'm not aware of any limitations, I'll have a look at it.

If you enable "Show debug menu" on the debug page in the
settings dialog and choose "Dump Directory cache" from the
menu after listing the dirctory, are the files missing in
that file as well?

Also, which Windows version are you using?

comment:3 by krachstoff, 17 years ago

the files listed in the directory dump are exactly the same
that I can see in the program itself. also stops at 4998.

see attached dump

oh and the windows version I currently use is windows xp sp2
but it also happens on windows 2000 sp4.

Do the files show up in the message log if you enable "Show
raw directory listing" on the debug page in the settings dialog?

Also, which protocol are you using? FTP? SFTP? FTPS?

comment:6 by krachstoff, 17 years ago

no the missing files do not show up in the log if I activate
"Show raw directory listing". it stops at the same file as
the other listings.

I am using plain old ftp.

Does the command line ftp client of Windows display the files?

comment:8 by krachstoff, 17 years ago

good point!

I think you found it if your using the windows ftp client.

the following happened: it stopped after the same file
filezilla did and then this message came:

226-Options: -a
226 output truncated to 5000 matches
FTP: 64d Bytes received in 1.17Seconds 51.18KB/s

that might explain something?
