I want to store about 250.000 PDFs (average size of one PDF: about 1,4 MB) in a SharePoint 2010 Document Library. Does somebody have experience with this amout of items without folders in a single Document Library ?
My questions are especially: 1. Is storing this amout of items flat (without folders) officially supported by Microsoft ? (the only data i found is that 30 million items per document library is supported, but it doesn’t explicitly say if this amount is only possible/supported with folders [source: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262787.aspx]) 2. One of our solution architects expressed concerns that some items might get corrupted when storing this amount of items flat, do you have experience with that ? 3. Are there any other reasons you would't recommend storing this amount of items flat ?
Peformance is not a primary conern. The items would be filtered with views
Best regards, Markus
