Thanks for the excelent work with Redmine. When we perform standard linux commands on the files in our /files directory such as mv, chmod, chown, etc. it returns a "argument list too long" error. We have to split up our selection to perform it on different subsections such as mv 110* then mv 111* instead of mv *. Can the files perhaps be split into subdirectories according to the year/month?

Best Regards,

+1 we are also having this issue. We need to save attachments in subdirectories to allow the file systems to handle the large numbers of files that have been attached in our redmine.
