comment At what number of files should I cap storing images in NTFS folders for optimal enumeration?
I agree, I usually use command line or scripts to deal with these folders, but we have users who occasionally want to browse, and I'd like to offer the best performance I can. My curiosity was whether performance is simply n based on file quantity n, or if thresholds exist. i.e. Opening an explorer window with 1 to 4096 files is a given speed, but 4096...16k is some other (slower) speed.

I should add that this pertains to storage of images on a single 500GB hard drive at 7200 RPM. Such storage is temporary until images are migrated elsewhere.

If a Google search doesn't lead you to a StackExchange site, then by all means, ask here. The goal is to have authoritative answers here that search engines can find.

comment How can I combine 30,000 images into a timelapse movie?
@Swift I understand you need the files to be at their original size. I've always batch downsampled images using Irfanview prior to creating the timelapse avi. Hopefully you find the solution you need!

comment What are Windows ACLs?
Main page for Windows ACL. You might want to add some additional qualifications to your question, otherwise people will close it and you'll be given links to the MSDN documentation and Wikipedia.

comment The '¤' character
Another way to think of it is a placeholder for a currency symbol. The equivalent of <insert currency symbol here>.
