100 files maximum added to queue if uploading a directory of files #1037

I am using dropzonejs v4.0.1. Overall dropzone works great with one exception:

If I drag in a directory containing more than 100 files, only the first 100 files are added to the upload queue. I can replicate it by simply creating a directory and adding 100+ files then dragging the directory into dropzone.

If I drag in 100+ files (no directories) they are added to the queue without issue.

Here is my configuration (trimmed sensitive options):

@myDropzone = new Dropzone 'body',
  clickable: false
  maxFilesize: 100
  parallelUploads: 1
  thumbnailWidth: 110
  thumbnailHeight: 110

Is there something I am missing with directory support?

A fix is available since several months but have not yet been merged...

Meanwhile you can add below l.927 this code block to resolve the issue.

if (entries.length>0){
    dirReader.readEntries(entriesReader, function(error) {
        return typeof console !== "undefined" && console !== null ? typeof console.log === "function" ? console.log(error) : void 0 : void 0;
