Is there a limit to how many files you can have loose in one folder. I have a folder with 45,000 + files. opening this folder is torture. I get the beachball for minutes before it displays anything. then once displayed acts very doggy (slow and jerky) copying into this folder can often times freeze the finder all together. I really want all these files in the same folder. Am i pushing the technology too far or is it just a problem i experience? is there a way to speed this up? is it a finder flaw/limit? I also found out that it will only index 7,899 files at a time. I'm just afraid i may lose these files when the finder crashes.
