Thats exactly, what I am doing and that’s why I was a bit puzzled that Peter
recommended to put all 20000 files into the bundle.
Perhaps I've misinterpreted Peter

Betreff: Re: AW: AW: Installer software

Interesting discussion here. It is possible to make an 8GB app bundle, since
the files inside the bundle are still individual files. It isn't a good idea
to include 8GB of videos in a stack. I wouldn't include all 8GB of files in
one installer, since the installer is basically one big stack (which runs
completely indepenently of any other files). I would put the files in a
separate folder on the dmg and write a script that copies the files from the
folder to the preferred destination. Such a script could be started from
Installer Maker.

Kind regards,
