Is there any limit to the depth and number of shared filetable folders that can be set up?  I want to use the SQ Server 2012 Filetable option to retain all documentation and want to set up about about 24 folders each containing a subfolder.  Just want to make sure there is no limit.

Root Folder
   - Folder 1
      - Subfolder
   - Folder 2
   - Folder 3.....

Hi,
limits are 15 nested levels and you should consider Windows API limitations of a max path length of 260 characters.
