    File/Folder management

    So just curious if anyone has thought or knows specifically about how the OS recognizes, organizes and displays files. BB's OS is much smarter than my LG chocolate was for displaying albums in the correct track seq. The music files obviously don't have to be in a folder to be recognized as part of an album, it has just seemed a cleaner way to manage the library between computer and phone in that I only have to move a folder for an album.

    Does a larger number of folders affect performance and in what ways? I'm not a java programmer but on a Unix, Windows or ZOS platform it's not much of an issue.

    Well if you are storing you this on you SD card you will see no performance difference at all. If you are storing this on your device you may see some performance issues but only if you use all or must of your on-board memory.
