Syncing file number limit

Recommended Posts

Btsync doesn't have a limit on numbers of files to be synced, but there is a hardware limit. 

I have ~75K files on my SSD windows PC. It takes 4 minutes to index which is about 300 files/sec rate. The default folder_rescan_interval is 600s. Which means once I reach 180k files it will be indexing perpetually eating cpu/system resources 24/7.

Was wondering why my system was slow half the time until I figured it out. I've extended the default rescan interval, but not everyone will know to. Does enterprise sync do it differently? How does it support many users? Wouldn't it be indexing all the time spinning the drives?
