Windows 7: Network Sharing file limit??

Network Sharing file limit??

Hi guys,

I have a windows 7 7068 on my main computer and an xp sp3 on my laptop. When I try to access a shared folder on my win 7 machines, from xp, I see only 134 files. When I try to see a folder shared on xp, from win 7 I can see more than 134 files, which means that win 7 must have some sort of limit to number of files in a folder a user over the network can see?

Is there anyway to remove the limit?

No limit that i know of perhaps it is a bug in build 7068, You do know you can download the official release candidate build 7100 from microsoft right?.

Yes, I do know that the RC is available, however, it requires to install everything from zero, it doesn't allow me to update the 7068 installation. I had a similar problem with 7000 or something like that. Did anyone notice or had the same problem? Thanks.

You can upgrade they just recommend that you don't.
  1. Download the ISO and burn the ISO to a DVD.
  2. Copy the whole image to a storage location you wish to run the upgrade from (a bootable flash drive or a directory on any partition on the machine running the pre-release build).
  3. Browse to the sources directory.
  4. Open the file cversion.ini in a text editor like Notepad.
  5. Modify the MinClient build number to a value lower than the down-level build.
  6. Save the file in place with the same name.
  7. Run setup like you would normally from this modified copy of the image and the version check will be bypassed.

Thanks, that has helped. 7100 is installed, and the folders show more than 134 files. I guess it was a bug in versions prior to 7100 :P
