Max number of files in folder
« on: February 10, 2009, 16:16:22 »

I have Nitrotracker folder for all my songs. But when I want to save a song it does'nt show up in the folder, althought the program says I have saved it.
When I try to store it in another folder it works fine. But after a while I had the same problem with that folder. Could this be because there are too many files in the folder? And is there something that can be done about it?

Anyways it isn't that a big issue but I just want to report it in case someone is working on a next version.

Can it be a file extension issue? NitroTracker filters the extensions.

If it's a problem of number of files, maybe you have really many files in your folder (I mean, more than 80).
I've never had this issue. Maybe it's because when I save a lot of versions of the same song, I erase the older ones I don't use anymore.

did you mean that you have a different folder for each song or one folder with every song in it?
If a different folder for each song, then it probably won't display them
If a a folder with all the songs in it, then it probably has way too many files in it.
Just store the songs made by others in one folder, songs you made in other programs in another and your Nitrotracker songs in the Nitrotracker folder.

It is not over 80, it is not even 20 when I seem to run out of space.
I don't make a lot of different versions of the songs either.

I just save the file and it doesn't show up, save it in a new folder, file does show up.
Thanks for your suggestions anyways.

Another suggestion: is this a problem of accents or special characters in the file path ?

Probably not, i saved under normal names.
Maybe the problem lies with myself, and it is not a bug at all. Maybe I forgot to change smp to sng, it'd be a coincidence thougth. Because it always happened in the same map.
However I can save to this map now ???.
I'll double check if I ever have the problem again.

Probably not a bug in NT, personally I have about fifty songs in my NT folder and I haven't experienced this kind of problem. Could it be a problem with DLDI patch?
