How big is your disk partition? :D There is no practical limit, I have a folder with over 20,000 small files in it...

too many files ie 55,000 will cause Explorer to hog the CPU then close leaving no error message, you can still use the DIR command in DOS (it will take couple of mins)

If I try to view in explorer ...frosen, I had to delete
them from Dos, If I had not seen it.. it would still be running.
