 It is not clear for us what you want to know or do...

 If it is about the number of TGraph objects that you can store in a TTree attached to a TFile, by using ROOT
itself (within a Geant4 context or not), then this is a question to be asked in the ROOT forum. (From what
I know of the ROOT/IO, if you arrange to store your TGraph objects in one branch, the only limit should
be on the size of the file on the file system, which is... large).

 Within Geant4/analysis and g4tools/wroot code, right now we store only histograms and flat ntuples
(no plots and TGraph equivalent).

 Anyway, if you intend to book/handle a flat ntuple with 266240 columns (!), you have to use (attempt
to use !) the "row-wise" mode introduced in Geant4/10.5. With a column-wise mode, where each column is
mapped on a branch and for which a default buffer of 32K is created, you will explode your memory...
(266240*32K is around 8.5 Gbytes).
