A wordpress folder and all its subfolders are owned by ftpCustomer.

when ftpCustomer connects via FTP, the wp-content/uploads folder shows only subfolders and files with the S bit in their permission.

Connecting via ssh, I find hundreds of files.  Even via FTP, I find hundreds of files if I connect as a different user.

What would be wrong with the ftpCustomer login so that FTP would return partial results?

Thanks!
