I am not able to see the files present on the server using Filezilla ftp client. I am using SFTP connection. I am able to connect to the server. I can see only the directories but not the files. I have also enabled the Server>Force showing hidden files Option. When I connect the server using winScp I can see the files. Thank you in advance. Any help is appreciated. [Note: All the files are php files only. Not sure if its related with .php extension]

@veer712 Hi, please don't use the Server tag anymore. It clearly says: DO NOT USE. So please follow that. Thanks! – user 99572 is fine Sep 12 '13 at 12:27

Open the FileZilla FTP tool. Navigate through View > Filename filters >Directory listing filters and uncheck all the checked options in remote filters and click on apply button.
