When is a directory too big, too full?
Posted on 2004-11-21
I have a design question. I have a search that returns info and loads a varriable amount of jpg's and .txt files. For different catagories I have seperated the jpg's and txt files into seperate directories.
i.e. jpg_10 and txt_10, jpg_20 and txt_20
then I use a varriable to find the correct directory
this has limited other things I am trying to do, because of constantly changing paths.
Is there an advantage or disadvantage to spliting up my jps's into seperate directories. If I combine them I could have 10,000 files in one directory. If I keep seperate $2,000 max in a directory.
