    I have a folder in my webspace containing LOADS of files. When I go and look in it using Fetch (or any other FTP client) I can only see a certain number of those files. It doesn't display all the files in the folder - only up to those beginning with the letter G.

    I'm trying to delete some of the files (that appear lower down in the list).

    Any idea what the problem could be? Perhaps settings on the server?

    Thanks in advance

    I know that one popular server program (PureFTPD) by default only lists the first 2,000 items in a folder. If that's the server program you're connecting to you might ask the administrator to change the setting.

    Fetch does not limit the number of items in a folder.
