Hi,

I use a plugin to upload files with rails 3. This plugin create 1 folder/record. I have a problem since a few days:

Errno::EMLINK (Too many links - public/upload/

I made a search and understood that it's a problem of 'Linux ext3 filesystem' that can only have 32000 folders. Is there a workaround ?

Thanks,

There is no simple fix we can apply for this. You will have to modify your app and its code to work around the limitation.

Ok, thanks. I will try create partitions for my data (subdirectories).
