Any reason why not to always ingest into same folder?

My bridge tagged photographs are in hundreds of folders as made by Nikon and Adobe importers.  Now I want to reorganise using ImageIngester.  My question is whether there is any disadvantage in ingesting around 20K photographs to just one primary folder plus the backups on separate drives?

regards,

My "Primary folder" has sub folders that are  DVD big (4.4GB)
Does this help?

Chris,

Thanks for your reply.   Note that my question was about putting all my files into the My documents\my pictures root folder not again making sub folders.  I just thought that with all files tagged and with file names including dates there maybe no reason to use sub folders.  Unless of course too many files in one folder gives bridge and any DAM program a problem?

Hi Ian,

I can definitely say from experience that Bridge CS3 slows to a crawl on folders containing more than 300-400 images.  I'd advise against putting all your images into one giant folder.  A lack of any subdivision would also make it difficult to split things up if your archive grows beyond the size of your internal hard drive.

Just my two cents,

Andris

Andris,

Thanks for your comment.  I had read a post somewhere which was a response from an Adobe techie who advised against having hundreds of sub folders.

regards,

Ian
