    I tend to size these things with the square root of the number of
    leaf nodes. If I have 2,560,000 leaves (your 10,000 files in each
    of 16*16 directories), then I will aim for 1600 directories of
    1600 leaves each.

    My backup is sized for about this number of leaves, and it uses:


    (I repeat the xxx in the leaf name - easier to code.)

    I don't think there is any need for two levels. There are 4096
    different values of three digit hex numbers. That's ok in one

    The only question would be 'xx' or 'xxx' - two or three digits.

    This one is on the cusp in my view - either works.

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
