Too much text?


     According to this document FileMaker’s fields should not be bigger than 10,000,000 characters. My text that I am trying to use in a field is 83,962,446 characters. The reason the text is so large is because it the listing of a hard drives directories and files. This solution will be a database of computer backup. Can anybody suggest best practices for handling such large amounts of information that are mainly in text? I should make a note that most of the listings that my records will not be this large, most will be within the 10,000,000 limitation. Thanks
