When you attempt to browse a folder, hard disk drive, or network share to create or add a personal folder (.PST) file or personal address book (PAB) file, you may receive the following error:

There are too many items in this folder. Some will not be shown.


You are attempting to create a file in a directory that contains more than 581 subdirectories. This is a limitation of the Macintosh operating system and is not a problem with the Microsoft Exchange Client.
