Hi Ruslan,

It seems a slightly odd way of distributing files into directories - but has it's own internal logic. Unfortunately I've been trying to apply the structure to how files appear in my own maharadata folder and it isn't making any sense. I've been having problems with indexes in the database and wonder if the issue is that my maharadata folders have been messed up - or if the content is in the right place and I've just misunderstood the filepath that you outlined.

e.g. In folder originals/255 I've got files that include numbers  2047, 11007 & 24063 - dividing those numbers by 256 suggests they should all be in completely different folders. Can anyone offer some insight that would explain how these files end up together?

Thanks, Gordon.
