Limit on File listing (6 posts)

    I noticed that Fetch will on list 1,998 or 2,000 files at a time from any given directory. Is this a server issue or something in Fetch I can change?

    Any thoughts or insight is most appreciated,

    Curtis

    Hi Curtis,

    Fetch does not limit the number of files it shows in file lists; it should list all the files in the directory, regardless of how many there are. So it may be a server issue.

    Could you post the beginning and end of your transcript when you go to a directory with more than 2000 files, and you only see 2000? Show us up until the first file is listed, and everything from the last file listed on. You can skip the part listing the 1998 files in the middle!

    That will help us determine if it's a Fetch problem or a server issue.

    Thanks,

    Here is the first couple and last few lines from my fetch transcript

    Thanks for looking at this for me.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the additional information. According to the transcript, the server decided to stop listing files after 2000 files.

    Assuming you're using Fetch 5, try the following:

    * In Fetch Preferences, click on the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Uncheck "Use 'LIST -al to reveal hidden files"

    Then connect, go to that directory again, and click the Refresh button. Let us know if all the files show up after you do that.

    Thanks,

    I unchecked the box, and I get the same results. Only 1,998 files are showing (the . & .. ) = 2000.

    I put in a support ticket to my hosting server to see what the deal is.

    Would checking the "Ignore File Cache" under preferences do anything different?

    Hi Curtis,

    Sorry to hear that didn't help. You should re-check the "Use LIST -al to reveal hidden files" checkbox, if you haven't already.

    No, "Ignore file cache" won't affect this - the problem isn't an out of date listing in the cache, the problem is the server is never sending you a list of more than 2000 files.

    It's a server issue, so the only thing to do is to contact your hosting provider, as you've done. Sorry.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions,
