Hi,
There's no inherent limit, but you should ask yourself how much data is going to be stored as XML and how much it's going to be used. XML parsing is relatively slow, and if you use it a lot it can become a performance problem.

XML is great for small and medium-sized files. If you have very simple data you might want to go with a flat-file format. If you have a lot of data, or the data is very complicated, you might want to use something fancier than XML, like a database or a custom binary format.

Hi
You have a nearly structureless data store with effectively unlimited storage capacity.
