Not really. It will b mostly limited by your amount of RAM as Everything keeps it's entire database in memory.
Make sure you run the 64-bit version of Everything as th 32-bit version is limited to 2GB RAM (Windows limitation; not Everything's)

There are people with 30 million objects (files and folders) in Everything. Things will be a bit slower as thee are more items to search through, but it keeps working.
You can see the amount of object in the statusbar after Everything is started.


Another approach: just try it. Add a share at a time and see how it goes.

:shock: That is an impressive amount of files/folders!

Just curious: can Everything handle that without problems? (not that I have plans to collect that many files .. :))
