An item in the server's Directory Entry Table (DET), which points to the first of the disk blocks used to store a file or directory. The directory entry also provides information about the file or directory, such as the name, creation date and time, size, and so on. Each directory, DOS file, and trustee list on the network uses up one directory entry. Each Macintosh file or directory takes up two directory entries. If you run out of directory entries on your disk, no one will be able to create a new file or directory.
