I am using Indy 9 with Delphi 6. I am trying to get information about
the files stored on a FTP server. Basically I have written a recursive
routine to go through the entire FTP server and get me the sizes of the
I seems to work - with one problem. I have encountered directories
where I get Zero records returned to the FDirectoryListing property. But
yet it returns the correct values for the other directories on the same
server. Now the first thing I did was check permissions on the FTP
server (MS IIS) - and the user has full access.
Then I checked the results of a IDFTP.List - and I see all the files in
the list... So after I do the LIST method - I normally see that the
count for both the string list and the FDirectoryListing property are
the same. However, on some directories ... the StringList will show a
numberer (say 4) as its count (which is correct) - but the
FDirectoryListing shows its count as ZERO - which is wrong.
Any thoughts as to what might be causing the problem?
Any ideas where to look?
// snippet of Code that gets the information.
// Create the String List to hold the list of files in the directory
DirList := TStringList.Create;
// Now jump to the correct directory - TreeBranch is the directory in
If (Length(TreeBranch) > 0) then Begin
End; // If
// Load the files in the List
// FTPServer is an instance of IDFTP
ShowMessage('Dir: ' + DirList.Text
+ #10#13 + #10#13
+ ' Count: ' + IntToStr(DirList.Count));
ShowMessage('DirListCount: ' + IntToStr
Any thoughts as to what might be going wrong would be greatly
