Too many files, WinSCP freezes

I have a folder with a million files in it and I connect with SFTP. Opening it with WinSCP often freezes the window. Sometimes the filelist comes after a good while, but more often the Application doesn't react anymore.

Is there any way to access this folders without crashing WinSCP?

Re: Too many files, WinSCP freezes

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
