[REBOL] Re: Scan for files through deep directory

Undoubtable! But it would help having a sample bad script and some knowledge of what is going wrong. Diagnosing blindly, I suspect most such scripts are written to run recursively, so a very deep folder structure could cause them to need a lot of stack space. A non-recursive solution will need far less interim storage. But 500meg sounds a lot. I dusted off the equivalent script I once wrote and tried it on my folder structure, and it needed less than 100K of interim storage. But then may not have so deep a tree as you. Can you post an example of the code you are using? Sunanda
