There is a limit on the number of files that may be in the root of a FAT 16 partition (somewhere around 120 or so I think), but otherwise there is no real limit (other than the size of the disk) for the number of files in a folder in Win95/98/NT.

However, the directory does slow down with more and more files, especially for FAT partitions. NTFS is much better at dealing with directories containing large numbers of files.

Cheers,

Raymond.

You can hold an infinite number of files as long as you have enough memory...
