Maximum number of files that a folder can contain

Title says it all. What is the practical limit to the number of files that can contain a single folder? These would all be tiny files, usually less than 20K, I'm looking for emotional limit of Windows, rather than the clear disk space limit.

This is on WinXP SP3 and these files would be created in Word.

Thanks for any idea.

I think that with Win7, 20,000 of handling should not be a problem.  Depending on how you access them (such as manually via file |) Open who needs time to load all files to choose among them) it will be slow, but even XP that will handle a lot, even though it may be slower.

    FAT32 maximum number of files in a folder

    The maximum size of a directory of FAT32 is 32-bit 65536 entries. A file it will take at least 2 entries according to the length of the file name. Long filenames are stored in 16-bit UNICODE characters, and only thirteen characters are stored in the directory entry.

    Big directories should be avoided for performance reasons. For example, adding a file requires all existing entries to be analysed in order to avoid duplicates.

    What is the maximum number of characters that a 2D barcode can have with the symbology PDF417 Matrix? How to solve the problem of code bar having too much data? I'm incorporating data of the bar code under a button field. But when the data is large, the problem occurs.

    Apparently the theoretical capacity of the PDF417 barcode is 1850 characters or numbers in 2710. Of course, the actual capacity depends on the size - more square inches, more data. But before the theoretical limit, that you can reach practical limits in scanning technology so test carefully with all models of planned barcode scanner.

  • CS6 "Unable to set a maximum number of files to open." YET.

    CS6 "Unable to set a maximum number of files to open." Just got the whole production and everything installed on my Mac, everything works fine to illustrator who only works very well on one not at all on the other. I tried everything I found on the forums here to my knowledge and without success. I just spent 2 hours on call on hold with adobe support and no one picked up. Extremely frustrated, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey eldriario-

    I just fell on it myself. I ran this doc to help adobe (link below) shell script once, quit Illustrator, repaired permissions, rebooted and was then able to start normally.

    Mind you, I would not the least bit surprised if the error returns again tomorrow, but for now it seems to work.

    Good luck and hope this helps.

  • maximum number of records that can reach cube

    Hi all -

    We are working on a project in which we have millions of data that currently exists in the data warehouse tables (facts, dimension tables)
    and we plan to apply OLAP cubes as a solution for querying data


    so I was wondering, if there is a maximum number of records or the limitation we may face during the generation of OLAP cubes oracle with this large amount of data.


    I hope someone answer me as soon as we need to know this info urgently.


    Best wishes, Maylo

    No, there is no hard-coded limit. The amount of data in a cube, you can handle will depend on available resources. For example, you can build a much bigger cube on a server with lots of CPU, memory and fast disk that you can build on a smaller system. I built blocks with more than 1 billion lines effectively the good material. Care to share more details of your situation?

  • What is the maximum number of images that you can import as a sequence in first Pro CC

    I do a lot of big engineering according to time is lapses that may include anything between 3 and 12 thousand images. When I import into Premiere Pro CC as a sequence - only about a 1/3 rd seem to be included in the imported sequence.

    Has anyone previously met and is it possible that I can work around the problem.

    Thanks in advance.

    OK... after having looked closely for files that are created by the GOPRO it would seem that the problem all by using the original sequential file names. I found that if I rename the files during import (Lightroom) to something simple like TL1, TL2.jpg etc, then I can import the entire sequence without any problem.

    Thanks to Shooternz and Jim for their suggestions.

  • Maximum number of files to a vmdk format VMFS5 file

    Dear all,

    I read the VM document maximum rates of VMSX5 and it State "files by volume = approximately 130 690.

    Does it means that if I have a VMDK file that is mapped to a windows drive E file server, and the number maximum file storage inside the drive E is only 130 690?

    In fact, I am facing the problem of migrating to the new file server in a VMESX5 with a big VMDK in drive E and have now about 400 000 files in drive E. But when I copy a file (total number of files inside should be about 70,000) from the old server to network on the new file server E drive files, it copies only about 40 000 files.

    Any idea?

    It make me mad because the schedule is very tight. Should I change the VMDK lun LUN Raw? Can lun Raw overcome the limit?

    Thank you!!!

    That you create a virtual machine, it consists of a couple of files like virtual disk files. In ESXi each virtual disk consists of 2 files, the hard of descriptor file and the data.vmdk file (you can find these files as only a single file in the browser data store). It's so two records of the maximum files allowed.

    You use a single data store for 29 millions of files in the NTFS file system?

    Yes, comments (Windows NTFS) files are found in the file (a file on a data store) hard and do not count against the maximum crowd at all.
