You know how to find a file on a computer: files are grouped in folders, and folders again in folders. (That's even often called a "tree".) There are no restrictions on how long such a chain of nested folders can be,

though, if you try to copy them, or move them, your computer will say "this is an awfully long chain, are you sure you want to even try to do this?"

...or words to that effect.

I don't know what you mean.
