CIFS Share -- no. of files limit in a directory

Jump to solution

Hi,

We are unable to upload files more than 65,534 in a folder (CIFS share).

is there any limit? if yes, may I know where I can find the limits.

The CIFS Share is from VNX-5600 (unified).

actually 64k is the max number of directories per directory (hard limit)

max number of files is much larger - 500k+

@sandeep - did you mix up files and directories ?
