    Does anyone know of a work-around when shared folders at the root of Windows
    2000 share point exceed the 65K limit?

    Basically I have a Windows 2000 server running AppleTalk services, and at
    the root of the sharepoint, I have 6 folders. One of these folders
    currently has > 65536 number of files. With this problem, I am getting alot
    of side effects.. from Logos not opening up correctly to files disappearing
    on the Mac Client side (a file will not show up on the Macs in the finder
    but on a windows box it comes up just fine in windows explorer{Appletalk
    issues}) .

    The actual server was 2 TB, and recently has been increased to 3TB.. Anyhow
    if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. If you also need further
    information, leave a message..

    No work-around -- you need to reduce the number of files in that
    directory (preferably by using sub-directories).

    Share fewer files. There's no workaround; it's a design flaw in the
    (extremely old) protocol than Win2k supports.
