Using Folders
You can experience a disk-full error if you attempt to store a large number of small files on a disk--even if the total amount of data you are storing is only a fraction of the available disk space. Many users aren't aware that the number of files in the root folder of any disk is limited. For example, a floppy disk's root folder will hold 112 files, while a hard disk can hold 512. The solution to this potential problem is to store all your files in one or more folders.
