Size of documents Apache can handle

If I am using Apache web server to serve static web pages, I need to store web pages in htdocs directory.
How many pages can this directory store ? I mean whats the maximum size in MB that can stored in this directory ? Is it upto the size of harddisk ? If there are thousands pages stored in this dorectory, how does Apache look through them when request comes in for a particular page ? Does it slow down the response ?
Is there any more efficient way of serving the page ?

thanks

That solely depends on the harddisk space available and the filesystem used.

I dont know about filesystems.
What filesystem am I using by default and what other options do I have ? How can I change file system from default to different ?
How does memory usage differ for the diferent filesystem used ?

That's OS dependent. Windows for instance supports NTFS, FAT32, FAT and uses by default NTFS, which is a very decent filesystem. Consult the documentation of the OS in question.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
