Further to my question here, I'm just wondering if there is a limit as to how many times a single file can be versioned within Dropbox? For anyone unsure, I'm talking about the number of changes found in this window:

Any insights?

I don't think there is a specific limit.

The only limit I see is that the revisions are kept for 30 days unless you have the pack-rat subscription.

I concur I'm not aware of any specific limit. I use it to syncing my Pidgin ~/.purple directory and have 166 revisions of my prefs.xml and my blist.xml has 289 revisions in the past 30 days. – Jeremy Bouse Jun 29 '10 at 1:34
