So, how many files can you put in a folder?

post #1 of 4

Apparently you shouldn't go passed 1,203,236 files. It is really bogging my system down. LOL explorer is at 2.5GB looks like i need the 8GB of RAM now.(there is 800MB free.)




I was try to compress a 9GB file to 7GB or split it, I must have forgotten to put MB after 7000. (i guess just 7000 it convert it to bytes.) or I put 7 down. w/e

It's kind of funny, it dose raise the question, how many is to many?

Thats hilarious. I'm not sure if there is a limit but 1,000,000 certainly seems like too much...

You should see how long it takes you to scroll to the bottom using the scroll wheel of the mouse.

way too long, if explorer doesn't crap out first. I am surprised at how long it, takes to delete all those files. (about 4 hours.)

I am glad I had a spare 4GB kit to add to my system, I used 4-7GB just to get rid of those files.
