Recommendation for number of files per folder

Hello,

     Does anyone out there have a recommendation on the maximum number of files you can have per folder in the vault before seeing a performance hit?  I heard somewhere the rule of thumb is 2,000 but I want to confirm.  I am implementing EPDM at a new site and the file to folder ratio has come up several times with the implementation team.

     Also, what is the recommendation for the number of sub folders per folder?  Engineers go crazy with folders (I do not allow them to create them in the vault) so I want to make sure we are not creating too many folders at the new site from the start.

 

Thanks,

Lucas
