    uSync folder size


    I just have a question in regards to the size of the Content folder in uSync, so every page which gets created ends up in the "content" folder. Is it possible to break the content folder up into individual folders inside?

    Our website will have 1000's of pages, will uSync have any issues with the size of the "content" folder?

    We plan to add over 1500 FOI requests to our website, it would be nice if we could have a folder inside the "Content" folder called "FOI" so its all kept tidy.

    Hi Matt,

    there should be no issue with this folder getting large (the practical limits of the file system are about 4 billion) but you can choose to have uSync store content in folders by settings the FlatFolders settting in the config to false. (see

    if you don't want to do it globally (for all usync folders) you can also do it per handler, by adding UseFlatStructure="false" as an attribute of the handler.


    <Handler Alias="contentHandler" Enabled="true" UseFlatStructure="false"/>

    if you do change this, i would recommend you delete the uSync/v8 folder and do a full export to ensure you don't end up with duplicates
