If you enable this setting, BITS will limit the maximum number of files a job can contain to the specified number.

If you disable or do not configure this setting, BITS will use the default value of 200 for the maximum number of files a job can contain.

Note: BITS Jobs created by services and the local administrator account do not count towards this limit.
