Dicom store question

Hi! I'm using Orthanc 1.2, and using the HTTP web server.

I found that when I upload the DICOM Images to server, it will generate a lot of files in C:\Orthanc like the photo below.

Can we change the settings that all the DICOM images store in one file?


Those folders are there to efficiently store files where there will be thousands of patients and studies so it would be difficult to change.

Do you mean one folder rather than one file?

Perhaps if you can explain further how you want to use these Dicom object files, we can help better.


The way Orthanc stores its database is explained in the Orthanc Book:

If you don’t want to store the attachments (including the DICOM files) in the filesystem, you could use the PostgreSQL plugin:
