    Yes, there is a way to increase FTP files display limit on an FTP server. cPanel offer two FTP servers to choose with. PureFTP and ProFTP. Each one has its own Pros & Cons

    Well, to be on topic please follow steps to increase FTP files display limit.

    1. Please login through bash shell using root privileges.
    2. Search for pure-ftpd.conf file which you will find in /etc folder.
    3. Edit it using any editor. Ex: Vi Editor
    4. locate 'LimitRecursion' in that file to edit.
    5. "LimitRecursion 1000 8" will be displayed on your screen.
    6. You can change the first figure of 1000 to your desired figure. Ex: "LimitRecursion 10000 8"
    7. Save the file & restart FTP Service.
    8. Do also refresh FTP session on your host to get revised data from your FTP server.
    9. All your files under you FTP account will be displayed.

    I hope the above information will guide you to view all your files under FTP.
