Media Share File Limit?

Model: Archer C59
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.0.1 Build 20170218 rel.79276

I have 19,312 video files across 1,297 folders, but USB Media Share (TP Share) stops scanning before finishing. I can remove some files and it will replace them with a few more on the next scan, but won't finish.

 

FTP access shows all files. Media Share does not show all files.

 

Is there a hard limit on total number of files, and if so, what is that hard limit on files?

I was able to gather that the file limitation is due to the USB module which works off orf miniDLNA where the limit is up to 10,000 (ball park estimate).

What is the format of your USB drive?

 

Have you tried to access the shares with different smb versions on Windows? (v1/v2)

It's a 6TB Seagate External HDD formatted in NTFS. There are 19,375 files currently on the HDD, but I've attempted to limit that to 15,702 files totalling 2.97TB by moving the other 4k files to a different folder and excluding them from the scan via the USB Advanced Settings page.

 

The total size doesn't seem to matter, it instead seems like it just stops scanning the files after about ~10,000 files.

 

For example, if I delete 1,000 videos that are currently appearing, making the total 14,702, it will continue scanning files that it previously stopped before scanning, and stop 1,000 files later. It's not any specific file that's triggering it to stop.

 

As for accessing the files on different versions of Windows, the main platform I view these files on is the Microsoft Xbox One via the Media Player app and the VLC app. As for Windows 10 PCs in the household, opening VLC and selecting Universal Plug'n'Play shows the files as well, but the same exact files present on Xbox One. It's not a Windows issue. The files have stopped scanning at a specific point.

 

However, if I open any FTP program and access the files, I can access the drive in its entirety. This leads me to believe that it is a TP-Share specific issue, which is that at a specific number of files, it stops scanning.
