There is an old saying, "On a clear disk you can seek forever".

An updated version says that "On a full 8 TByte disk, you can search forever". You can end up with an unbelievably large number of files on that large disks! Searching those directories can be inconveniently slow, and if you need to search files for contents, you might as well do some other task while you wait for the results.

I am in the lucky situation that most of my 26 TBytes is filled with huge video files, so the file count / directory size is moderate. And the files are not subject to contents searching. Actually, my 2 TByte text archive disk takes a lot more time to search than my 8 TByte video/sound disks, because the file count is five times higher.
