Directory limit

Postby empty_cups » Sun May 20, 2012 5:04 pm

I set up RP and it is working pretty well with my Droid Razr.
I have three directory shares set up.
The first two, one with TV shows, and another with podcasts work great.
I set up a third share that is a 500GB hard drive filled with movies shared at the root (is sharing at the root an issue?).
At any rate, whenever I try to look at that third share, it times out. Is this because I am sharing too many files, or what?

Thanks for any insight

Can you set up a temporary share at one of the subfolders on the 500Gb drive to see if it works that way? AFAIK there is no limit on number of files, but sharing at root level could be the culprint.

Re: Directory limit- Root directory was the problem

After moving all files into a subdirectory and then sharing that instead of the whole drive, RP had no problem sharing the files.
Thanks!
