10.5: Organize data files for networked Time Machine use
Authored by: stokessd on May 24, '08 07:52:58AM

An mbox file is a plain text file, easy to parse. It's not like outlook's binary blob. You can grep right thought it. I'll take a handful of mbox files over a zillion tiny files that aren't stored on the drive efficiently any day.

By the same token, should SQL records all be individual files? Think of the carnage...
