Maxdirsize for CIFS directories

Hi all

how can I work out how many CIFS files can be stored in one directory? I have read in an alternate thread http://communities.netapp.com/thread/2564 how to calculate for NFS but not CIFS.

There must surely be a way of doing this. Otherwise we are totally relying on the filer to alert on the maxdirsize setting.

Thank you for any help

This link is to a KB for storevault but the calculation should be the same

Thanks for that. It's a shame there isn't a full article on this, but this one is helpful.
