Code: Select all
files\0\ files\1\ files\2\ files\3\ ... files\d\ files\e\ files\f\
That's basically what I was suggesting. Create the sub-folders as part of the install, knowing that you would be using them. Yes, it's still a hard limit on the number of files, but it's an order of magnitude higher than it is today.bantu wrote:See http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic ... 34#p211434
As a workaround we could strip off the first character of the physical filename and ship 16 subfolders in files in our packages, but that would only move the problem to another limit (~16 * 2000 instead of ~2000).
