This one took a bit of looking about...

There is no limit to the number of files in a folder on an NTFS formatted
drive. The maximum file size is 16 TB - 64 kb for some odd reason...

Hmmm - I have to ask why this question is being put in a newsgroup devoted
to an OS that doesn't natively support NTFS??

Buggered if I know but I did have a good time looking that one up. Maybe
they're thinking about upgrading to XP? I didn't bother to ask myself why.
Somethings I just don't want to know. <g>

Why ask 'why' ... when 'how' is so much more fun?

Please accept my apology of putting a question in a wrong newsgroup. I
should put it in Windows XP one.
