#7334 closed Bug report (outdated)

When viewing a directory with more than 9998 files, the file list is truncated at 9998

Reported by: Mario Zigliotto Owned by:

Basically, in the event you have a directory containing tens of thousands of files (like a logs directory) FileZilla only shows the first 9998 files.

Steps to Reproduce

  • Put 10 or 15k files in a directory
  • FTP into that folder

Result: First 9998 files are listed

I wrote a crappy bash script that will create an arbitrary number of files in helping to help with reproducing this corner case of a bug:

To use it:

  • Create in a folder you want to test within
  • Execute: chmod a+x to make it executable
  • Run it as ./
  • It will ask how many files you want

Other Stuff:
I have reproduced this on Windows and OSX.

I can test on Linux if someone asks but I don't have a VM currently accessible so I took the lazy route :X
