I`m wondering if &Content directories are indeed needed? what are the restrictions for a windows XP folder? will I see better performance on large sites or what?

Thanks

First, this is a much for Windows 9x/ME systems and 2000/XP with FAT32 filesystems. These can support maximum 10,000 files per folder (or less if there are long filenames) and the performance is being degraded significantly.

NTFS is better here - it doesn`t have a limit, however it was found that performance falls greatly when accessing such folders with big amount of files. Also, after 20 - 30 thousand files filesystem may start loosing certain files, generate errors or even hang the system completely.

That`s why we added such feature.
