#4769 closed Bug report (rejected)

All folder content loads before it is displayed.

I use Filezilla

  1. I connect to some ftp site.
  2. Then I double click on a folder which contains ~10 000 files.
  3. (Filezilla wants to open the folder and list all files now)
  4. So I get a response:

"Odpowiedź 125 Data connection already open; Transfer starting."

  1. I wait a looong time and nothing happens.

I think that before Filezilla opens a folder, it loads all file names to the memory. If folder has 10000 files, there is a problem.

My suggested solution:
...make some cashe? or load only those file names, which are on the first screen?

Total commander doesn't have this problem.

The FTP protocol does not provide any means to only load a partial file list from the server. FileZilla has been successfully tested with directories containing over a million files.

Most likely your server is either terribly slow or you've got some broken router and/or firewall that's disrupting FileZilla.
