At the moment we have a list on a global site collection (with about 200 entries). These items represent countries (simplified) - so it's not that often, that new items have to be added or old itmes have to be deleted)
At first we planned to have a single document library with a folder for each item.
Now our customer wants a sperate lib for each country with a complex folder structure. At the moment all stuff is stored on one network file drive (about 400GB, 250.000 files in 30.000 folders) and the goal is to create a common folder structure for each country/entity (not the case right now).
At the moment I'm considering if we should
- add a seperate site collection with a doc lib for each entity/country.
- create one single site collection with 200 libraries.
My gut wants to stick with the first solution (more extendable, etc.) but creating a site collection just for a single document library seems to be like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.
What do you think?
