File Display Limit

If you have over 2,000 files, you will only be able to see the first 2,000 of them when you are connected via FTP. For example, if you have 2,135 files in a directory, you will only see the first 2,000. We recommend that you use sFTP or the file manager if you are attempting to browse a folder that has more than 2,000 files.
