Many millions. Access times will become unacceptably long a long time before
you reach the limit.

Here is some more detailed information:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l.../cc781134.aspx. Look for "Files
per volume". Note that if you want good performance then you should limit
the number of files per folder to around 10,000. Note also that storing
files is one thing, opening them at the same time is another.
