I'd like to repeat the finding above about 50k files: if there're >50k files in a directory, Tixati will not be able to create a new torrent
from that folder.
The shell code above works to replicate such a folder. Additionally I've tested it by copying a random source code folder 5 times, totalling:
find . -type f | wc -l -> 55422 files and
find . -type d | wc -l -> ~5407 folders
and Tixati can't handle that either: "Invalid file system in meta-file". However with only 46185 files and 27035 directories, Tixati creates such a torrent just fine.
Please note: importing a 50k file .torrent file created in qBittorent works fine and Tixati initializes it without issues (I did not test the actual transfer)
