User gets an 8210 error when attempting to unarchive a previously archived mail.
User gets an 8210 archiving mail with attachments
Running a GWCheck against the archive finishes with an 8101 error
The archive is very large.


Attempting to manually create a file in the archive directory also failed. The filesystem that the archive was on was formatted FAT32. FAT32 has a Directory Entry Table limit of 65,536 entries. The archive folder contained 65,535 items so the FAT32 limit had been reached.

If possible reformat the volume containing the archive with a filesystem with a larger limit - NTFS for Windows or Reiser for Linux.

If this is not possible then the user will need to maintain multiple archives
