Hi Kevin,

I noticed today that the covers of my newly purchased resources are no longer showing.

I started investigating what was happening, and discovered my covers folder contains 11,709 files. I believe I might have hit the maximum number of allowed files.

Anyway, this is just a minor cosmetic issue, but I thought I'd report it anyway in case it's easy to fix (like distributing the files into multiple sub-folders...)

Hi Jan,

The maximum allowed number of files is in the billions, so that's not the issue. Please list the resources in question and we'll take a look.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the quick reply. I tried copying a file to the covers folder manually in Total Commander, and can confirm that I have reached the maximum.

That corresponds to this Q&A on Stackexchange: http://android.stackexchange.com/questions/12422/is-there-a-maximum-number-of-files-per-directory-or-maximum-directory-size

My SD card is indeed formatted as FAT32. Sad

Basically for all new purchases, covers are no longer downloading, for example:

Another question: Do you have any experience running the Logos app from NTFS file system? (I know it's not supported, I'm just asking about experience, not support. My setup is no longer anyhow - I'm a hopeless tinkerer... Converting my SD from FAT32 to NTFS would be a small change compared to my other modifications...)

Hi Jan,

As you know, this scenario isn't supported and it's really not a Faithlife bug. I have over 112,000 resources in a test environment and it's not an issue.

That said, my assumption was that you were using the ext4 filesystem, not FAT32. NTFS isn't the one to use as I expect the Linux kernel on your device likely doesn't have read access to NTFS and almost surely doesn't have write access. It's not really a good filesystem for Linux.

You might try formatting the SD card in ext4 and starting again with a fresh install, although you're on your own and we can't support it.

Thanks so much Kevin! That idea sounds really good (and if it doesn't work, I can still revert back to FAT32).
