Right. But if you remove the .dir-control file and already have an existing structure, are the routines smart enough to reuse the space and skip where the directories are "full"? Or does it just start from scratch in which you would reuse the directories but it would be additive to existing structure. So if you have 100 users in the "c" directory it would add 100 more.

Meaning the directories will continue to be in the sub directorys. If you remove the .dir_control file it will automatically create a .dir_control file with the initial values. meaning no subdirectories yet.
