226 Output truncated to 2000 matches

226 Output truncated to 2000 matches… This was what I got when I was trying to backup my blogs files before upgrade to WordPress 2.8. I have a folder that contains more than 2000 files. And the HostMonster hosting that I am using seem does not allow me to download all the file that I want. So I search ‘226 Output truncated to 2000 matches hostmonster’ at Google. Hopefully, I can find a way to solve it.

Here is the solution that I found…

Use the backup feature in cPanel. It will gzip your specified directory and files into a single file, and you can download everything in a compressed format.

There seem like a server limitation to allow 2000 files upload/download only. Besides using the backup feature in cPanel, any other way to fix it? I failed to download the backup due to large backup file size (around 1 GB) and slow Streamyx Internet connection speed.
