File Number Limits on NT 4.0??

By rountree ·
Is there a way to calculate the maximum numbers of files per directory when using long filenames and an NTFS NT 4.0 volume? I am running into what APPEARS to be a limit when collecting large numbers of imaging files to a directory for distilling down to 650MB groups for making CD's. I don't think I have ever seen an actual formula (or even a reliable rule of thumb). Any ideas?

Its not a true limitation of NTFS on files...its somewhere in the range of 17 trillion files, but its how much it the MFT taking up(Master File Table) on a harddrive with thousands or millions of files the MFT can be enormous. When the CD is writtenit uses a TOC method cataloging the files, whuch uses less space
