    Cool FAT32 limitations & keypad question

    How many files are you limited to have under one folder under FAT32 ? The reason I ask..
    I am trying to use Lorty's keypad plugin. It appears you have to have the files under one folder if I am not mistaken. I have about 4000 files. I dont want to kill my hard drive and overload it. Is there a better way to run the plugin or is there a better solution ?
    Thanks !

    According to Microsoft, FAT32 has no limitations on how many files you can put in one directory. Even if there is a limit, it will be way more than 4000.

    For more information on FAT32, see knowledge base article
