sub-directory overload?

07/31/2006 01:01 pm
Is there any reason why the directory overload function creates %&OvrX directories if there are more than 1000 files in a directory but does not apply this in the same way if there are more than 1000 sub-directories in a directory? Is there no problem with overloading a directory by having too many sub-directories?

Yes, it could be a problem, but we haven't worked on this yet and noone reported this. It is a far more rear case than when there are too many files in a directory.

I agree that most directories will never reach this but the main download directory can do easily - imagine 200 projects that all have files across 5 different domains and you are already there. Would be a nice feature to add - even if it were just for the main download directory. You could even split the downloaded files into subfolders for each letter of the alphabet - ie "" and "" could go in "e" and "" could go in "g". Chances are this would reduce the maximum for most people. Just an idea for a future version maybe.

Yes, I will think about this. Thank you!
