Is there a limit to the number of subfolders within a folder?

Jump to solution

I am having some subfolders not syncing.  I just found out recently that you have a 5000 file limit within each folder.  Do you also have a limit to the number of subfolders within a folder?

Hi David,

Doesn't look like it was answered. Allow me to answer this for you. The Desktop Sync application has the following limitations: -

- 500K files and folders total per instance i.e per Desktop Sync application.

- 20K item limit per single folder i.e one folder or sub-folder can only contain 20,000 files in it.

- Up to 50K sub-folders if you do not have any files in it. 

I hope this answers your question. 

Regards

Sagar.
