Hi,

I've used VPB for quite some months now, but I could never really figure out what those distributed split levels are good for. Recently I have built a database using values 8 and 16 because someone suggested these for a level-24-terrain. Now someone else asked me to explain why I used exactly these values, but I don't have a clue ... and can't ask the one who suggested these values Embarassed

So could anyone please explain (in easy words Smile ) what they are actually good for? I would really apprecaite any help Smile


Thank you!

Cheers,
René

Hi Uzala,

If I remember right, that was for the filesystem:
Some filesystems produce errors if they contain too many files in a single directory. So with the splitlevel you can control on which level VPB should create subfolders to reduce the number of files per folder.

If someone is better informed: please correct me Smile

Thank you!

Cheers,
Torben
