IIS FTP list fails

By jacobconsulting ·
Running IIS 5 FTP server I am able to connect successfully to my site, over time the list of the remote server contents has failed. It used to work fine, as the directory fills with files and folders I can't get the list in various ftp programs and dreamweaver. At the moment it will display the directory contents one time in 20 tries. I do successfully change to that directory and can transfer files into it, although not being able to see the files to edit them makes it just about useless.

Are there any settings to change on the server to resolve this issue? I have attached a log of a session in ws-ftp as an example. The list command is executed and completes, but is listed as transfer failed.

Thank you,
