The number of files is limited only by the number of blocks on your drive, because each file takes up a minimum of one block (in other words, it's a really big number :-).

The Be File System uses 64-bit addressing, meaning that it can accomodate volumes that are measured in petabytes (a thousand terabytes). You could store a whole lotta files on a hard drive that large...if you could buy one, that is. ;-)
