In my ASP.NET application (Windows 2008 server, IIS 7), I have customer profile photos in a sub-folder. The customer photo is displayed on their web profile using a simple html IMG tag. With regard to performance, how many files can I store in a folder
before performance starts to degrade due to seek time - the web server accessing the file system to find the specified file? I've heard general statements about using multiple sub-folders.. Right now I have about 1,200 images in the folder.
