Yes there is a limit on the number of files. A disk drive is organised into logical sections, each section occupies a number of bytes, perhaps 2048 or 4096 or even 8192 bytes. Every file is stored across these sections, so a small file of just 100 bytes will still occupy a full section of perhaps as much as 8192 bytes of disc space. The precise system varies from one operating system to another, and is usually amendable by the administrator.
