I came across the same problem today (noticed i had repeaters with 1000s of rows) and stumbled upon this thread.
I created the following script to convert the data of a file field into a repeater. This worked when there was a file uploaded (field has data) and should be inserted into array of repeater on first position.
Use at your own risk! I’d advise to make database backup and test in local environment first.
